Robot Safari: Into the Wild World of Tech, [Ages 7-9], 7 Jul - 25 Aug (Sat 9:30AM) @ East Coast
Destination: Robot Safari. Build your own robot animals with robotics, code and electronics!Listen to the different calls of the wild lurking within the Savanna. What magnificent creatures roam these vast plains? Using a Hummingbird Robotics Kit and craft materials, use your imagination and skills to team up to create a whole new species in the safari – robot animals! KEEPIN’ IT SHORT & SNAPPYFor kids ages 7-9No experience necessaryDesign, engineer and build robotic animals from ScratchPower hardware and electronics with codeHummingbird Kit and craft materials provided for in-class use. “My children, ages 10 and 7, found the class creative and interesting, and I was impressed by the games they managed to create. Most importantly, they're now excited by the world of programming. Highly recommended!” - Maya, Parent Deep within the concrete jungles of Singapore…A new species of wildlife has emerged in our urban landscape – the rise of robot animals!Just like how the kingfisher inspired a Japanese engineer to redesign high-speed trains, draw inspiration from the majestic animal kingdom to create your own robotic creatures. Take a walk on the wild side and... equip your robot animals with lightning reflexes or LED eyes that light up.Use Scratch programming to control motors, motion sensors and other electronic parts. Then, watch your animal come to life and interact with the world around it! Combine your knowledge of circuits and code with engineering concepts and outsmart other animals by adding modifications to your robot animals. Here’s how we helped our giraffe reach the highest leaves by building a scissor linkage mechanism for its neck!Come join us on this wildlife adventure to create the ULTIMATE robot animal!Next Stop: Robot Safari. OH! THE STUFF YOU'LL LEARN!How Electronics Work (simple circuits, LEDs & sensors)Craft Engineering & DesigningUnderstand Mechanisms & StructuresCode and DebugUse Design Thinking to PrototypeShare & Present LIFE SKILLS LEARNTLogical ThinkingProblem SolvingDesign ThinkingPresentation Skills PedagogyNo lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact. Parents love us "My kids had a blast & came home armed with knowledge & information which they were excited to share with us." - Joanne, Parent "Thank you for a wonderful and exciting enrichment program that is so much more than academics.. it’s fun but for me as a mum, an important future skill set for my son." - Rachel, Parent Got more questions on this course of awesomeness?Read our FAQ section below!Call us & we'll call you back! +65 3163 5385Email us! aGVsbG8gfCBzYXR1cmRheWtpZHMgISBjb20= Frequently Asked Questions1. My child is new to computers and programming. Will he / she be able to follow?Robot Safari: The Wild World of Tech is designed with the assumption that students have at least an understanding of block programming with Start with Scratch. 2. My child is younger than 7. Can he/she join?Robot Safari: The Wild World of Tech is recommended for kids who are 7 and above. If your child is still in preschool, we recommend Curious Cubs or Tiny Techies which can be found on our schedule page. 3. I've enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry. 4. Can I bring home the Hummingbird Kit?The Hummingbird Kit can be bought separately if you’re interested! 5. How’s Robot Safari different from Build Your Own Robo-pet?This course delves much deeper into mechanical engineering concepts so you can build way cooler robot animals. Please note:This camp will proceed with a minimum of 4 tickets sold. We will inform you in advance if the camp is cancelled. Refunds will be made accordingly. Unless otherwise notified, the camp will go ahead.We will be filming and taking photographs of the children in our workshop. By registering a child's attendance at this camp, parents/guardians grant Saturday Kids a perpetual licence to use the student's work, photographs or videos of the student, and other materials for purposes such as publicising or promoting our workshops/events and the students’ accomplishments on Saturday Kids' website or on our partners' websites.
