Description

Courses allow the students to learn from primary robot concepts to more complex building techniques and mechanical and electrical systems.

Benefits our students experience and learn

  • increased attention span and concentration
  • learn and strengthen self evaluation techniques
  • trial and error to create mechanical and electrical systems
  • enhance creativity in customisation of robots

Lets take a look at our robot courses:

Primary Course 1 year: For 5 or 6 year old children.

It is expected that ability in reading simple instructions will improve naturally. Therefore, to assist early learners the text contains steps with real-sized images of robot parts to help the making process. Animal and motor vehicles robots are interesting and fun for students to learn these basic concepts:

  • learn the name of parts
  • understand the different types of parts
  • experience basic assembly for connecting parts
  • create basic motor systems
  • understand how moving parts work

Basic Course 1 year 6: For elementary students

The textbook requires reading instructions and step by step images. Robots introduce important mechanical movements and require students to learn how structure and movement works. Short written exercises aim to assist to teach and evaluate understanding. Students are also able to learn basic principles in robot customisation. The benefits for students include:

  • learning various assembly methods for connecting parts
  • create motor systems with various types of movements and actions
  • learning important vocabulary as part of the sequential robot making process
  • experiencing the various making techniques
  • begin to solve problems with teacher assistance

Middle Course 1 year 6: For elementary students and Junior High School Students

The textbook reading level requires a good knowledge in robot and programming vocabulary. Students create complex robots with more difficult mechanical systems including Students use real-life drawings or blue-prints to create advanced robots. Programming is implemented in a new a robot design procedure; a) input system (sensors); b) control system (iPad – programming), and output system (motors)Written exercises require describing how mechanical systems work, and perform a series of tasks and record results. The benefits for students include:

  • assembly of multiple moving parts
  • create motor systems with extended movement and actions
  • identify and use sequential robot making skills and techniques
  • acquire knowledge in programming and creating robot actions
  • solve problems independently and discuss solutions with the teacher

Advanced Course 2years: For Junior High School Students *Middle Course for at least 12 months is required

Students use real-life drawings or blue-prints to create advanced robots. The continuation robot design and building advances the use of; a) input system (sensor); b) control system (iPad), and output system (motor). The benefits for students include:

  • students learn to read technical drawings for robot making
  • advanced mechanical techniques are experienced
  • clever robots implementing sensors, complex movements and actions require precise creation
  • complex programming for overall system control is learned
  • collaboration in group work supports problem solving

About Stem Iwate

Kaori and Simon are proud to introduce to you our school for learning. We believe children should learn by being creative and learning at thier own pace. We also think that learning should be fun so that children stay motivated to learn to get new knowledge and aquire new skills.
