If you are a school student, you should start as soon as possible. School is the part in your life where you will have enough time to experiment, create and innovate with your ideas. Moulding your ideas at such an age will change the way you think and mould you into a great thinker and doer at such a young age.
If you are a college student, it is ideal for you to start learning immediately from the ICUBE Robotics, since all industries are already looking out for engineers who have practical experience in technologies such as self-driving cars, machine learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence).
We keep a separate database for each student that enrols with us, and each project that they attempt is recorded. This ensures that the child continues to grow and learn newer and more advanced topics, and each child gets the special attention & care to achieve that.
If your child has previously finished a camp or regular class with us, he/she will get completely new projects to work with in their next session. They will construct different robots, and learn different concepts of STEM along the way.
This fun and practical approach to education is beneficial in several ways for the child! They experience what it is like to be an engineer at a young age – identifying a problem, gathering information about the problem at hand, figuring out possible methods of solving the problem, attempting their possible solutions, and finally determining the best and most efficient one.
The program helps them improve the way they think and attack problems, and experience the science and mathematics with a hands-on approach, which ensures that the concepts are well established with their logic.
The skills that children develop during our classes include procedural thinking, spatial skills, dexterity, problem solving and critical thinking skills.
The robotic kits we provide to the students are internationally manufactured premium kits that are fairly expensive. The same kit is used to make multiple models across different classes. These kits are provided to the students for the period of their class. If you wish to purchase a separate kit for your child, we will be happy to assist you in sourcing one.
Depending on their age and the program they have enrolled into, the take away for students is different. In general, the classes are all hands-on practical classes, where they get to experience science and math that has been taught in their schools. The children experience a fun and engaging workshop where they encounter concepts and applications of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
In the robotics programs for example, the children learn principles of science and physics such as understanding simple machines, forces, Newton’s laws, speed-distance calculation, gears and gear ratios. Technology behind the sensors used in the designs is taught, along with the technology behind other components used such as motors and microcontrollers.
They learn concepts of mechanical engineering while constructing the model, concepts of electronics while connecting the electronic components together and concepts of programming when they finally code to give the robot life. They also have to execute mathematic calculations along the way. Concepts covered in mathematics include (depending on age) – Geometry, Pythagoras theorem, trigonometry, calculations around radius & circumference of circles, gear ratios, speed, distance and time, data collection and analysis, ratios, concepts of algebra, coordinate planes and dimensions.
We have several levels that a student can learn within robotics itself (Over 190 projects according to their age and level!). Along with robotics, we also encourage students to learn Arduino, Scratch programming, 3D Printing and Drones. These can be taught depending on their age and advancement in projects. Science is a continuously learning process, and we ensure that the child has the resources to continue grasping, excelling and reaching new heights!
