Why robotics works so well when teaching kids to code and computational thinking?Computational thinking or programming logic is something it is not so easy to teach kids at school. There are many complex concepts in any programming language and the fact is that most of children are not able to understand them in depth. So, what students would usually do is simply recite the pieces of code mechanically without much thinking.
Robotics for kids help students learn collaboration and problem-solving as a team.
What we have found out that learning at robotics classes provides with the best experience with troubleshooting problems and is a good catalyst to enhance the participants’ problem-solving skills.
We are using both team-work and pair work to collaborate, construct, build, and program a robot under switchable roles. We had robot designers, robot builders and robot programmers as well as someone who presents a project.
Online Robotics classes for kids reach a new level!
This year we have started online robotics classes for kids when covid19 hit Australia and people were required to sit at home.
We had students and families who were happy to move online and continue with robotics education. And now we are sure online robotics classes for kids work and many students, who are not able to attend our face to face robotics classes but who still want to learn, may do it online.
Thinklum wins Young ICT Explorers 3rd place in NSW with Handy Hands Robotics project
We are very excited to share great achievement of our robotics classes team as we won the 3rd place at Young ICT Explorers in NSW in Year 9-10 category. We had much younger students involved in a robotics project and having won in a much higher category adds even more value to our amazing achievement. Robotics is a perfect way for kids to learn STEM, collaboration and creative thinking.
