Lessons are conducted using the latest LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 System. Each student will be provided with a laptop and EV3 set for programming during the class. Students are taught in a show-and-tell manner where they learn to build robot designs and understand the key logic behind good robot design.
This theme-based course consists of seven Challenge Missions, and a few basic programming concepts. Each mission and project presents a fun and engaging STEM learning opportunity. The Space Challenge enables students to take responsibility for their own learning. They work as young scientists and engineers, immersing themselves in motivating STEM activities that develop creative problem- solving, communication and teamwork skills.
