Robotic Coding Training (for 10-12 age group kids)
August 24 @ 9:00 am - August 25 @ 4:00 pm
This is a special workshop for kids! We have an experienced guest, Fatma Karaca to teach our children hot to code. She works as a teacher of information technologies and software developer. Fatma is giving robotic coding training to 10-12 age group students. She is giving “Scratch” coding training to kids to help their imagination on how robots work. They are building smart robots by using Arduino cards and MakeBlock.
Coding can really trigger and encourage children’ desire and ability to combine their sense of logic with their intuition. Kids instantly see it as a tool for testing their creative stream of “what happens if I do this?” questions and ideas. When kids are learning to code with their computer, robot, tablet or other screen, it’s not just idle screen time. It’s an active engagement and developing activity that, in the process, teaches them valuable life skills.
Kids can make villains’ lairs, rockets or doll houses out of cardboard box and crayons. Imagine what they can do with code! Kids find creative ways to use what they have to build something new. If they want to program a playlist, make a robot to solve a task or robot come to life, or even design a new game, they can use the building blocks of code to create their own unique toys, gadgets or engaging stories to play out with friends.
Robotics and coding education give children the skills of mathematics, science, problem solving, teamwork, development of sleight of hand, project based thinking, creative arts and many other fields. Children are introduced to coding, turning the devices into useful tools. Coding training enables children to develop a variety of software, such as games, applications and even rocket science. Scratch is a visual programming language in which a variety of media tools such as pictures, sounds and music can be put together to create and share animations, computer games, interactive stories and many more.
In this 2 day robotic training Fatma will be our guest to teach robotic coding. We will limit the seats for 20 kids only since it will too difficult to practice with 20+ kids.
– Kids will be required to bring their own kits to practice. I’ll keep you posted about the required items.
– We need a place to hold 20 kids and their parents for 2 days. Please let me know if you have a place for us!
