What We Do
Windemere Robotics offers two programs to meet your child's need. The programs are structured to align with your child's age and skill level. The Pathfinder program is for fourth and fifth graders. They will embark on a new adventure and discover new skills in robotics and programming. The Explorer program is geared toward middle schoolers. They will explore the possibilities of using robotics to solve complex problems.
In both programs students will understand the concepts of robotics and test the limits of gears, motors, drivetrains, and various robot sensors. They will stretch their problem solving and creative thinking skills as they build and program the robots. The twelve week modular curriculum is designed to explore STEM concepts through robotics. Students will use programming skills to build autonomous robots to perform predefined tasks.
Students will be paired in groups of two to build their robot. We focus on collaboration and teamwork. Adding an element of competition motivates and energizes students. We will create small in-class competitions to expand their learning. At the end of the program, we expect the student to have a good understanding of robotics, and its importance to their future.
The Pathfinder class is for kids ages 9 & 10. In this program, we expand the concepts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to a whole new level where kids discover robotics through a fun and engaging learning experience.
This is the beginning of a life long journey towards becoming the type of problem solvers the world expects from a 21st century innovator. This program introduces kids to programming skills and explore the use of sensors to build an autonomous robot.
The Explorer class is for kids ages 11 to 13. In this program kids explore the importance of STEM fundamentals and computer science concepts. The project based units instill proper engineering practices from an early age.
In this class, kids will explore the concepts of using gears, motors, and sensors in robots. No matter where you start, this program will stretch the boundaries in problem solving & creative thinking. Kids will explore the use of sensors to build an autonomous robot.
