Activities & Programs That Are Educational & Fun!
With a growing economy that has a higher demand for STEM fields, it’s important that the next generation learns how they can make a difference in their world. That’s why Engineering For Kids offers a variety of classes and workshops that kids of all ages can enjoy. Robotics camps and classes give students the opportunity to dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small!
Robots are the next BIG thing. Just ask Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg or any of the thousands of companies investing in robotics.
65% of today’s students will be employed in jobs that don’t exist yet. Learn it Academy Workshops will help to prepare your children for the future in a fun, hands-on and engaging environment.
Our Junior Robotics Workshops enable students to discover Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in a fun, engaging and hands-on way. Working with the latest LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 kits, students will be introduced to the world of robotics by building and programming robots to complete various challenges.
Students will design, construct and modify robots, developing technical skills that are much sought after in the engineering industry. They will also program their robots to carry out specific tasks, developing workflow skills, learning about logic, loops, switches, blocks and more.
We will have a range of one-off workshops available along with multi-week terms where children will progress week by week through to a final week showcase for family and friends.
What is STEM?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. By exposing students to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and hopefully pursue a job in a STEM field. A curriculum that is STEM-based has real-life situations to help the student learn. Programs like Engineering For Kids integrates multiple classes to provide opportunities to see how concepts relate to life in order to hopefully spark a passion for a future career in a STEM field. STEM activities provide hands-on and minds-on lessons for the student. Making math and science both fun and interesting helps the student to do much more than just learn.
