E-Bots

Designed for Grades 4 or 9-14 year olds, our classes are a max size of 10 students where children will be partnered for activities and are expected to co-operate and share well

*Not every program will be offered every season

Fall Schedule

E-Bots Level 1

Introductory Programming

There is nothing more exciting than a new adventure and that is certainly what a child will feel like they are doing when the world of robotics presents itself. Children will learn what a robot is, how it works, and what sensors are available to make it come to life. Sensors will be explained through analysis, experiment and observation in an interactive environment. This students work in pairs which will compliment their communication skills and interactive group play.

No pre-requiste or experience required. 

E-Bots Level 2

Intermediate Level Programming

Continuing their robotics journey from Level I, children will be all that more encouraged in their adventure as they are able to more freely program and design their robots as harder challenges present themselves. Understanding the sensors, more complicated programming concepts will be explored with more emphasis on problem solving, teamwork and exploration. Level II will complete the foundation of logical thinking, introduction of variables and data commands.

Students must have taken E-Bosts Level 1 to participate.

E-Bots Level 3

FIRST Lego League Fundamentals

This level is for children who have completed levels 1 & 2 and are interested in extending their knowledge of programming constructs. This class will cover many of the programming concepts that are necessary for children to approach and be successful to compete on an FLL table. A child who has previously taken Level 3 may take this course as the curriculum has had a facelift. This new Level 3 is a prerequisite to be considered for an E-Bots Robotics FLL Team.

Students must have taken E-Bots Level 2 to participate.

E-Bots Level 4

Advanced Programming

This level is for children who have completed levels 1, 2 & 3. This class will cover advanced programming concepts, logic statements and utilizing mindstorms programming beyond EV3. A child who has previously taken the old Level 3 may take this course. They may also wish to revisit the new Level 3.

Students must have taken E-Bots Level 3 to participate.

Beyond LEGO

For students looking for more. These classes our classes are a max size of 10 students and must have completed Level 3 to participate.

Fall Schedule

Arduino

Introductory

Join us in discovering the world of Arduino. Arduino is a technology that is rapidly becoming more popular; we’re even seeing more of at our FLL competitions. The open source platform allows the children to take their new found arduino programming skills and apply them to many different avenues of their school and personal life. At the end of the week the students get to take home their Arduino kits to continue their adventure.

Students must have taken E-Bots Level 3 to participate.

ROBOTC

Formally known as VEX

ROBOTC is the premiere robotics programming language for educational robotics and competitions. ROBOTC is a C-Based Programming Language with an Easy-to-Use Development Environment.   ROBOTC students will learn key skills that easily transition to the real world, industry standard C-Programming languages used by professional engineers and computer scientists.  Students will be introduced to this text based language through the use of the Mindstorms NXT.

Students must have taken E-Bots Level 3 to participate.

FLL Prep

In FLL PREP students will get the opportunity to manage themselves as a “team” in a mock FIRST LEGO league season. They will be challenged with a previous seasons table & project. Unlike our Challenge camp this prep class will offer the students a well rounded E-Bots Robotics FLL experience. For half the day students will be in the robot room learning strategies and concepts unique to an FLL robot design, the other half the day the students will be working on a project, learning how to approach and execute a research project.

This is a prerequisite to be considered for an E-Bots FLL Team.

Students must have taken E-Bots Level 2 to participate.
