Introduction to Mission to Mars & Ocean Journey

24 Aug 2017

At Engineering For Kids, Robotic curriculum is designed in different themes. From Ocean to Mars, Olympic to Davinci’s Design or Environmental to Surgeons and more. Different themes represents different problems sets in different context.
In each of the course, learners will first build their own base robot then understand the challenges in different context. They will then find a solution and configure the robot to solve the specific problems. All the problems are designed for their age in our curriculum from Junior to Apprentice to Master level.

After Summer Robotic Olympic, our next theme is Mars then Ocean. In September Mission to Mars, we will build “Mars Rover” then “Launch into Space” and “Find a Safe Cover”. Throughout this course the students will explore different ways in which a robot could be utilized to explore a distant planet.

 In October Ocean Journey, the robot will release a trapped dolphin, repair a broken pipeline and deliver a box of supplies out to an oil platform. The goal is to teach students about the building and programming aspects of robotics as it relates to real-world issues in ocean exploration.

Robotics courses is not just about robots. It’s about understanding real-life problems in different aspects. Why it’s a problem and how it impacts. Students will use their imagination to provide the solution and then construct their solution for testing. It is a highly practical course that students really work on real-life.
