Slavens-Robotics-Early Release Friday-Feb 15- cancelled 2/14

Slavens-Robotics:

  • canceled 2/14 due to low enrollments
  • Early Release Friday-Feb 15
  • February 15, 2019
  • 12:00-3:00 pm
  • 1st-5th Graders
  • $55/student

Robots used may include Edisons, Ozobots, and/or Sphero

Great robotics experience for all students. Students work with a variety of robots as their skills increase. They will scan barcode programs with the Edisons, using light sensors to follow lines, detect & avoid obstacles, or play bumper cars! Learn how to command with colors, to make a robot speed up, spin, start or stop, and follow specific colors using the Ozobots.

Learning is extended with all robots by using computers to begin building their own custom programs using block codes. Coding is more visually designed to enable beginning readers to also start programming their robot to perform their own unique plans. This is an excellent robotics course for the beginner, to learn how robots react, and how to control them with autonomous commands.

Course may include Edisons, Ozobots, Sphero robots, depending on skills progression

CSA-Robotics Coding & Lego League Prep

  • Thursdays from 4:00-5:00

  • Minimum of 8 students,
  • Maximum 15 students
  • (no clubs Feb. 25th- March 1st)
  • $131/Student
  • All classes at CSA

Join us as we code and program robots of all kinds.  In our robotics classes, students will learn to code and program in different languages and apply them to different robots. Programming for the beginning levels begins with block style programming, moving into more complex customized program blocks and routines. Advanced level robotics work in line-coding real-world languages to instruct and control the robots. Each class series has exciting challenges and mini-competitions, to push our learning to applied problem-solving.

Robots may include any of the following, depending on ages and skill levels:  Mindstorms EV3,  Edisons, Sphero/Ollie, Boy with EV3 Robot-smallor Ozobots. We are continually exploring and adding new robots to our lineup. If students have a favorite robot of their own, they can contact us to see if we will be able to control it with our installed software and curriculum and bring their own bot to class to extend their learning.

Our Director and instructors have many years of experience in coaching competitive robotics teams and have continual knowledge about new robots, programming languages, and relevant additions to every robot class.

Slavens-Coding Games & Apps-201819Thurs-S3-4

  • Coding Games & Apps

    • S4-$130/student, April 1-May 20, 7 classes
    • Grades 1st-5th

    Coding games and apps is a class for 7-11 year olds to learn coding, while building something fun. Age appropriate lessons will animate your student’s mind and get them excited about coding by teaching them to build their own games or apps!  In this programming camp, we will use animation software and basic block-based coding to develop a video game unique to each student’s imagination. Students will work on computers with a block command syntax, learning how to build characters and backgrounds, animate actions, levels, timers, interactions with characters, and more. Software varies, including several programs that build incrementally on students’ prior experience and knowledge. If your older student is more advanced, we will step them up to more challenging line code introduction to JavaScript or Python. Challenge your student to create a game or an app that even you can’t beat, and bring the learning home!
