About this camp

highlights

Our Goal: "Encourage students to be STEM leaders using the latest educational robotics platform." Students design, build, and program robots! They go beyond the classroom and exercise their skill set in an atmosphere of creativity and teamwork as they progress through multiple levels. Let's get excited about Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM)!

upcoming events
  • April 27, 2018Upcoming PA Day in Halton District School Board
    Institute of Robotics & Intelligent Systems, 211 1550 South Gateway Rd, Mississauaga, Ontario
    Join us Friday, April 27 from 09:00 am - 04:00 pm

    During the PA DAY workshop, students will have an 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 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.

    VEX IQ ROBOTICS (AGES 9-17)
    VEX IQ set allows students to explore multiple robots; students will be excited about the flexibility and personalization offered by the VEX IQ kits. Once you are done building, get ready to program, VEX IQ offers both autonomous and driver control and acts as a great stepping stone for students interested in programming!

    ARDUINO PROGRAMMING (AGES 9-17)
    The Arduino programming and hardware language provides students with a simple and accessible user experience and introduces students to multiple new projects of various levels of complexity. Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform which can read inputs and turn the inputs into outputs.

    3D PRINTING PROGRAMMING (AGES 9-17) 
    The 3D printing is designed to teach the students the process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital file. The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes.

Director's Message

principal

Asfar Imam, Program Administrator

 

At IRIS students design, build, and program robots of all shapes, sizes, and complexity! Creativity is key and FUN is a must โ€“through our โ€œrobotic education programโ€. 

At IRIS we hope to provide student with the means to become the latest S.T.E.M leaders by using robot technolgoy as a learning platform. There is a significant gap with regard to S.T.E.M education in North America and we must empower our students to overcome such obstacles. As the role of robotics systems within human-centered environments continues to grow,  we strive to educate parents and students about its significance and the potential that robotic systems holds for our future.

Students  will explore science, technology, engineering and mathematics topics beyond the classroom, create real world applications and discover countless career opportunities in related fields. At IRIS, we hope to create a learning environment that the students find enjoyable and are inspired to further puruse S.T.E.M education.
