Children naturally use their curiosity to observe and explore. In our classes children get connected to real world questions or problems. We engage pupils to think like engineers and build motorised robots which can interact with its environment via sensors.
During the course of the curriculum children learn how sensors such as touch, infrared, light or ultrasonic sensors relate to physical laws in a playful way.
The kids explore how speed, friction and forces affect the motion of objects and robots.
Coding & Engineering
We use scientific models, design prototypes, analyse and interpret diagnostic data. By encouraging children to develop their problem solving and logical thinking skills, our pupils have to cope with challenging tasks and learn key engineering strategies. For instance, problems will be broken down into smaller parts in order to simplify the process of finding a solution.
The pupils will analyse a problem through the eyes of an engineer and learn coding and computational thinking in a developmentally way via the use of visual programming blocks.
After having built up their knowledge in hardware and software related skills, the little engineers will bring the robots to life.
Our classes are built on cooperation and enable children to analyse a real problem together as a team.
During the development life cycle the children meet together for brainstorming sessions and discuss design solutions. Students share their ideas and improve their robots as part of systems, functional and integration tests.
Thinking and communicating in such a cooperatively yet playful environment will boost young children’s confidence and character building.
