It has been an interesting year at Badri High School full of fun and learning. We are proud to say that our students have completed 2 levels of Mind storm EVE 3 with the best 12 teams participating in an in-house school challenge.
Yet, we still find people asking us what Robotics is? This question still amazes me and makes me wonder why so many students are still so left out. Robotics is a part of STEAM Education– it helps a child use his knowledge of Science and Math in Engineering (building) something using Art and Technology.
All the skills that a child knows and learns are actually experienced in STEAM Education hands-on. For example we have seen kids enjoy and apply Math as they move their creations applying angles and rotations in their programs, or making their pulleys work perfectly or creating a force to push the competitors Soma Bots out of the arena. It’s a perfect amalgamation of fun with learning.
So why not introduce your child to this amazing and challenging world which will help his imagination grow and open up new horizons. After all, this is the education of the future!
We, at Badri High School, are enthusiastic to announce that after a successful Winter Camp, we bring to you STEAM Summer Camp 2018 from 6th to 20th July where children will get a variety of programs to choose from. Course details are as follows:
Mini Bots: Robotics for Ages 5 – 8
This course has the Lego WeDo set and it combines the beloved LEGO bricks with one motor, two sensors, and a hub that connects the model to the computer. Simple drag-and-drop visual programming software is then used to bring the model to life. With this kid-friendly approach, the set makes learning fun, inspiring and engaging.
Bot Mania: Robotics for Ages 9 – 16
This is a beginner’s course in Robotics. We utilize Lego Mindstorms /EV3 kits, software and various Lego Robotics materials. The objective of this course is to introduce the student to basic programming as well as problem solving strategies. This course will involve students in the development, building and programming of a LEGO Mindstorms/EV3 robot. Students will work hands-on in teams to design, build, program and document their progress. Topics may include motor control, gear ratios, torque, friction, sensors, timing, program loops, logic gates, decision-making, timing sequences, propulsion systems and binary number systems. Student designed robots will be programmed to compete in various courses as developed by the First Lego League.
Engineering 101 Ages: 8 +
The course emphasizes on the learning of the engineering process and fosters the mind set of an engineer. Engineering is not just a profession, it is a way of thinking. The thinking process of an engineer is more inclined towards problem solving, creative thinking and, most of all, building new things. This course is designed in a way to inculcate the thinking process of an engineer through hands-on activities involving various engineering disciplines.
Activities during the course
- Aerospace engineering(rocket design + building)
- Aeronautical engineering(real flying airplane design and development)
- Civil engineering(designing & building towers & bridges)
- Mechanical Engineering (working & building different kinds of catapults + designing roller coasters the length of a room).
VR Game Development for Age Group: 7 – 15 years
With Construct 2, making games is easy and interesting: just drag and drop objects around, add behaviors to them, and make everything come alive with events!
Within minutes or hours you can have a working prototype that you can share with friends to play. In almost no time you can test your ideas and know if they are really fun or not, focusing your efforts in what matters the most: designing your game!
This course will take the children into the world of Virtual Reality where they will program their own objects from geometrical shapes or create a whole fantasy world in 3D.
The participants will use the immersive experience of virtual reality to create memorable experiences
ARDUINO for Age Group: 13 – 16 years
In this course the students will learn about the fascinating world of electrical concepts and programming. Kids today are very keen to know how the modern world and its gadgets work and through this course the participants will experience and exhibit vital skills for the future by understanding the working principles of different electrical appliances that we see and use everyday. Experience the thrill of programing your own objects and controlling them.
Creative Writing for Age Group 12 – 15 years
“There is a writer in every person.”
Writing and articulation is a skill which will help an individual in their personal, academic and professional lives. In this course for advanced writers students will be introduced to various genres of writing. They will learn strategies to enrich their vocabulary by effectively using the thesaurus. A myriad of English listening, speaking, reading and writing activities will help them learn to love the language.
Computer Proficiency Camp for Age 8 & onwards.
Use of Computer is a must nowadays whether you are in school, college or university . You will need to create assignments and projects by using the computer effectively.
This computer proficiency course will help the students gain proper a skill set on how to use Microsoft Word, Power Point and Excel effectively.
The students will be working on a real time project that will help them learn all the necessary techniques that will help them in creating any projects and assignments using Microsoft Office and making them ready for print using proper layout settings.
As a bonus we will also be teaching Adobe Photoshop a raster based software for designing graphics and editing pictures. They will also learn Advanced Google Web Searching techniques for their research based projects.
