Winter Groups starting jan 11
The safety of our students and staff during this pandemic has been our number one priority. We've only organized classes that could be safe and yet still educational and engaging. In the summer of 2020 that was virtual summer camps. During the 2020/2021 academic year we held no classes. After reorganizing our offices, creating dedicated workstations and reducing the numbers of students, we cautiously returned with some camps this summer and regular classes this Fall. Now with the recent vaccine eligibility for our students, we look forward to becoming a fully vaccinated workplace starting January 11th.
Robotics groups this winter include:
STEM Robotix is a year-round facility for Upper Valley grade 3-12 students to explore, develop and progressively learn the key concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math).
Classes are offered in three trimesters (Fall, Winter and Spring) during both after school and early evening times.
Introductory classes focus on robotic systems with visual programming environments. More advanced classes teach general computer programming languages and algorithm development. New educational offerings, based on student interest and ability, such as robotic art construction, fractal designs and printer/plotters, provide more opportunities for both beginner and more advanced students to try new robotic applications.
Mobile robots provide one of the best platforms for students to learn key STEM concepts and apply that knowledge to challenges of incrementally greater complexity. Throughout the progressive learning model, students will design, build and program increasingly sophisticated robots. STEM Robotix will use both in-class and off-site challenges and competitions to create a fun atmosphere in which to evaluate the student's creations: successes, failures and everything in between.
