The goal of these programs is to help children grow in what is commonly known as 21st Century skills, the skills they will need to succeed in the future job market:
We’re thrilled to be able to offer a 6 to 1 student to teacher ratio this fall, for even more hands-on, high-touch support in developing computational thinking, engineering skills, problem solving and more. We have an amazing group of very talented and highly skilled Robotics Instructors that are true role models to the younger generation. We have with us UBC students soon to be Mathematicians, Integrated and Electrical Engineers, Computer Scientists, and Cognitive Systems experts. A lot of nerd power in the room!
With the help of our computer science instructor, we’re introducing more advanced programming tools like RobotC for Mindstorms and Scratch for WeDo 2.0 that more closely simulate coding languages used in the robotics/software engineering industries. These programming languages will be accessible to students who have completed and show competency in previous Robotics levels using the LabView and WeDo visual building block programming interfaces.
We are coordinating our efforts with interested parent volunteers and the Victoria, B.C. FLL chapter to send select teams to the internationally acclaimed FIRST LEGO League Robotics competition happening in Victoria February 2017! This year’s theme is Animal Allies, “all about our furry, feathered and finned friends.” We will have representative qualifying team from each of our schools represented at either the FLL or BCIT GearBots SkillsBC Robotics Challenge coming up this Spring 2017.
