Power & Automation Engineers (ages 8-10)
For: Elementary Students (grades 3-5)
This masterclass aims to further acquaint students with construction elements and modeling techniques, enabling them to participate in the intricate design of mechanisms. This program serves as a continuation of the “Young Engineers” initiative. Equipped with the necessary tools, young engineers are prepared to address a variety of challenges, having become well-versed in concepts such as construction layout, motion, and mechanical advantage.
Through collaborative efforts in constructing real-time interactive robotic models, children engage in a captivating and enjoyable experience that they are reluctant to see end. Each construction involves a unique “code” born from students’ computational thinking, executed within the digital realm of MIT Scratch 2.0.
Throughout the creative process, children actively partake in practical teamwork, fostering the acquisition of knowledge and linguistic skills. This is facilitated through the formulation of inquiries, identification of patterns, strategic selection, and the drawing of conclusions.
