Robotics After School Programs

Club Scientifics' Robotic enrichment program consists of weekly one hour sessions that last for 14 weeks. Students can build and program robots to perform a variety of different functions. For example, robots can be fitted with sensors which control motors and react to light, sound, touch, etc. Due to the expense of the LEGO® robotic kits, and the necessity to program with computers, students will not be taking their robots home at the conclusion of the program.

Club Scientific offers two Robotics courses:
Introduction to Robotics - for grades 2-5
Design and Program Robots - for grades 3-5

Introduction to Robotics
Students aged 8 to 11+ get a head start on simple robotics with this concept using LEGO®. They build models, attach sensors and motors that are plugged into a computer, and configure behaviors using a simple programming tool. The activity pack is divided into four themes: Amazing Mechanisms, Wild Animals, Play Soccer and Adventure Stories. It covers topics within science, technology, mathematics and language.

Design and Program Robots
Students aged 8 to 14+ learn to design, program and control fully-functional models using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® components. They use software to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions for a variety of life-like robotic behaviors. And they learn to collect and analyze data from sensors, using data logging functionalities embedded in the software. Curriculum lessons are developed by Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Academy and provide a series of real-life activities, covering topics within science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Students must complete the Introduction to Robotics program first. They can then take the Design and Program Robots program.

Advanced classes are available for both Robotic programs
