PA DAY ROBOTICS WORKSHOP (AGES 5-17)
Institute of Robotics & Intelligent Systems
Spend your next PA Day building and programming robots!
The next scheduled PA Day workshop is on Friday June 9, 2017 from 9 AM to 4 PM. Don't forget about the last day of the school year: Friday June 30, 2017 from 9 AM to 4 PM.
During the PA DAY workshop, students will have the opportunity to build and program multiple robots of different sizes and complexity. Students will be introduced to our STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning programs using robot technology! Our hands-on approach allows students to exercise their problem-solving skills while working in an atmosphere of creativity and teamwork. Students will explore STEM-based topics beyond the classroom, create real world applications and discover the countless career opportunities in related fields.
Students will chose between the two following workshops:
LEGO® WeDo™ ROBOTICS (AGES 5-8)
The LEGO® WeDo™ ROBOTICS program is specifically designed as an intermediate step between the more fully featured robotics platform and regular, non-robotic LEGO. Students will be working with gears, pulleys, motors and sensors to construct, program and control robots.
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 (AGES 9-17)
LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 is designed for those with no programming background and introduces students to concepts such as coding, looping, decision making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop programming interface.
