Robotics and AI - Sphero BOLT

Sphero BOLT’s eye-catching, programmable 8x8 light matrix opens up an endless array of coding and gaming capabilities. Use advanced sensors to track speed, acceleration, and direction, or drive BOLT without having to aim your robot thanks to the compass. BOLT also features infrared communication, allowing your robot to “talk” with other BOLTs. Equipped with Bluetooth SMART and a strong scratch-resistant shell, this robot’s brawn matches its brilliance.

Sphero Edu uses app-enabled robots to foster creativity through discovery and play, all while laying the foundation for computer science. Our program goes beyond code with collaborative STEAM activities, nurturing students’ imaginations in ways no other education program can. Cross-platform apps are approachable for all skill levels, allowing us to reach as many minds as possible.

 

The curriculum is designed for students and covers many foundational computer science and engineering skills that are not often taught in early childhood. These academic frameworks are taught through a series of powerful ideas: the Engineering Design Process, Robotics, Programming, and Sensors. Each Idea addresses foundational math, literacy, science, and art skills.

Camp Key Elements 

 

  • STEM based curriculum on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics

  • Camps curriculum is designed from beginner to advanced level

  • Hands-on experimental and exploratory study

  • kids will learn strategies for “Critical Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Problems Solving, Designing Projects and Communicating Ideas”

  • They will discover basic physical science concepts such as gears, pulleys, levers, and wheels and axles

  • Students will be assigned with projects according to their grade and skills.

  • At start of each week teacher analysis the kids level and teaches everything necessary for a beginning or advanced student to next level to complete the course work.

  • At the end of week teams will have Robot battles competitions.

Friday Showcase
 

At the end of each week, attendees can invite their family and friends to join us for a showcase celebration to share their final projects. Learn more about the fun and exciting activities your child experienced during the week and have an opportunity to meet your child’s instructor. Presentations vary by course topic and instructors will highlight some of the important concepts covered during the week and possible next steps to continue your child’s learning. Arrive early as showcase begins at 11:00 AM and is typically finished by 12:00 PM. Then we will start Fun Friday - Walking Movie, Ice Cream, Cookies, Games, Lots of fun
