Instructor: Hui Wang
Robotics Beginner Level-1 is designed and created for children age 5 to 7 to learn robotics in a fun and non-intimidating environment! Each Robotics kit contains various types of basic building blocks and special functional blocks such as CPU, contact sensors, IR sensor, buzzer, LED lights, etc. Programming of the robots is accomplished with a card-reader system called “Funny Cards.” Each child will build 12-15 robots throughout the semester and complete a variety of robotics related challenges. At the end of the semester, each student will present his or her robots in an open forum. This club will be taught in a mini-PBL (Problem Based Learning) style. The instructor will not only teach students technical skills of building a robot but also inspire their creativity, guide them to think critically, and foster a safe atmosphere for students to learn effective communication and collaboration skills.
