Event description

Description

Combining coding, robotics and creativity, this Post PSLE Enrichment Course is designed to expose your child to creating technology and physical computing.

The robocar that your child will build uses an array of plug-and-play sensors to avoid obstacles, track a course and be wirelessly controlled. This kind of system is used in Mars rovers, autonomous cars and the bots built for all kinds of robotics competitions. Conquering this workshop will set your child on the path to building bigger and better autonomous vehicles!

Vital for many jobs in the future, physical computing is the act of creating interactive systems that can sense and respond to the world around us, allowing humans to communicate through computers. Everything from cars and smartphones to home automation and gaming consoles are tied to robotics, electronics and mechanical engineering. Whether your child dreams of becoming an astronaut with NASA or hardware designer at Apple, the coding and robotics path starts here!

Your child will learn:

Fundamentals of Physical Computing with Plug-and-Play Sensors

  • Module 1: Combining Light & Sound - Revisiting

  • Module 2: Understanding Inputs & Outputs

  • Module 3: Using Infrared Sensor

  • Module 4: Using Ultrasonic Obstacle Avoidance Sensor

  • Module 5: Radio Communication

  • Module 6: Remote Control Race

Fundamentals of Coding & Robotics

  • Module 1: Introduction to micro:bit & Makecode Platform

  • Module 2: Working with micro:bit LED matrix

  • Module 3: Programming Concepts & Constructs

  • Module 4: Making Music with the Buzzer

  • Module 5: Using Addressable & Non-Addressable LEDs

  • Module 6: Controlling Motors

Our aim is to help your child learn by doing and build 21st century life skills including creative confidence, self-directed learning and fundamentals of physical computing. And of course, your child brings home his/ her custom-built robocar to continue learning and iterating it to become an ever-more powerful machine, expanding their imagination. Join us for an unforgettable experience and hands-on fun.


Recommended Ages: 6 to 15

Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate

Path: Coding, Robotics, Engineering

Tools: micro:bit, makecode visual programming, robot, sensors

Workshop Schedule

This is a 8 sessions, 2-hour per day course designed for beginners. This course will be conducted at Kuriosity Electronics Playground (B1-23 Sim Lim Tower). No coding experience required.

Prereqs & Preparation

All participants must be able to bring a laptop and charger to the workshop. Price includes 1x micro:maqueen robocar with buzzer, 4 programmable rainbow lights, 2-way LED light indicator, 2-way IR line-tracking, ultrasonic obstacle avoidance sensor, 1x micro:gamepad, 1x IR remote control. Price excludes BBC micro:bit (educational microcontroller we will be using for the bootcamp), available separately at S$32.

Refund Policy

We understand that, sometimes, plans change. If you can no longer make it to the bootcamp, please email us at least 7 days before the scheduled event date for a full refund. No refunds will be given to last minute cancellations.

Note: Minimum of 3 and maximum of 8 participants per session. Bring your child's friends to start the fun and keep the momentum going, even after the bootcamp! We're keeping the group size cosy to encourage interactive learning. You will be fully refunded if the workshop minimum is not fulfilled.
