A Summer Camp Full Day starts with Lego Robotics.
Kindergarten students build robots (such as the alligator, turtle, train, and car) using LEGO® building blocks and motors. In the process of making their constructions move, they will learn basic engineering and simple machine principles. They will learn about electricity and how gear meshing works to transmit energy. They will also engage in pairs and work with their mentors to develop critical teamwork and collaboration skills. Students use their imagination and apply newly learned mechanical skills to either build their own creations or follow a blueprint.
After Lego Robotics students have a one-hour lunch break where they eat, play games and take a trip to a nearby playground. They then come back to Robofun and the afternoon commences with a Coding and Game Design class.
In our coding and game design program, our students learn the basics of the Scratch Jr. programming environment. Each child makes their own interactive stories and games by snapping together graphical blocks. Students learn to edit and modify characters, and add their own sounds, voices and movement. Each child works on his or her own iPad. Scratch Jr. was developed by Dr. Mitchel Resnick and associates of the MIT Media Lab. Dr. Resnick is one of Robofun’s Board members and trusted advisors.
Our STEM Education Difference:
Our core educational philosophy centers around an intimate interaction with our students. Because we know that each child learns differently and at their own pace, our 'mentors' assess and monitor your child's skill level; each class they take is matched with their skill and interests. Our curriculum and mentors focus on mastering current skills then challenge each student to get to a higher level.
Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and when they are ready they work on a new and interesting assignment.
