STEAM Level III: secondary years
Year/Grade 6-9 (Ages 12-15)
Robotics and coding
Like the Level II workshop, Level III continues the exploration of STEAM "essentials"— ideas and thinking tools necessary for science and engineering learning. With the LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 kit, students design and build programmable robots using high quality motors, sensors, gears, wheels, axles, and other technical components. Students will: gain a better understanding of how technology works in real world applications; understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models; build, test troubleshoot and revise designs to improve robot performance.
MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 is a hands-on, cross-curricular STEAM solution that engages students by providing the resources to design, build and program their creations while helping them develop essential 21st-century skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.
The combination of physical LEGO® bricks and an intuitive block-based coding environment means that interactive, creative learning is easier than ever to achieve. The course uses Intelligent bricks that together with building elements with data logging capability to motivate students to plan, predict, test, problem-solve, analyze, and explore, all while deepening their STEAM learning and developing career-readiness skills.
mechanical computer engineering
This workshop explores how computers really function and the basics of computer engineering. Children will discover how simple, mechanical switches, connected together in clever ways, can do incredibly smart things and learn about their analogues found in all electrical computing devices.
Students will build mechanical computing machines to understand basic computer engineering concepts to include circuit design, binary operations, memory, logic gates, conditionals, truth tables.
We offers students the opportunity to peek under the hood of computers and discover how they really work. It is hands-on, fun, easy to learn and the logic is all right there in front of them.
Mind, Body & Soul : Yoga 4 Kids
The benefits of Yoga for children and young people are proven, both in terms of concentration, relaxation, but also in improved self-esteem. Through fun and interactive excercises, children will discover the benefits of Yoga, improving balance, coordination, and flexibility.
During this workshop, children will have the opportunity to discover that there is not one form of intelligence but multiple intelligences. We all have a bouquet of nine intelligences: body, interpersonal and intrapersonal, logical, verbal-linguistic, visual-spatial, musical-rhythmic, naturalistic and existential. Through fun exercises, children will explore these nine intelligences.
Through this workshop, children will learn more about their body, and learn to live in harmony with themselves and others.
