Our robotics curriculum is making it possible for all kids to learn robotics! KIDTEC Online Tutoring Academy’s Robotics is an exciting introduction to mechanical design, construction, programming, and teamwork skills! We use simplified educational pedagogy to teach industry software to students through cool, interactive learning activities that engage novice students in STEM education. Each activity incorporates the Common Core State Standards and may be integrated into the normal school day. Our robotics curriculum is designed for students who may be new to robotics and have never been exposed to a robotics course. We simplify all the technical terminology and relate it to students’ current interests and curiosities.
Ready for Robotics (Grades 2-5)
Ready for Robotics introduces elementary students to robotics. Kids explore science in a fun, hands-on learning environment. Ready for Robotics prepares students for their first robotics class, beginning with topics, such as how robots and machines work and how to create models using computer simulation software. Our goal is to create a healthy start to STEM education, build confidence, explore, and discover!
Robotics-N-Motion (Grades 6-8)
Robotics-N-Motion introduces middle school students to computer science and algorithmic thinking, the foundation of 21st Century learning! Robotics-N-Motion enables children without robots to control virtual robots using the same code used to control physical robots. This is an ideal course for schools and organizations that do not have funding to purchase robots. Students explore the field of Robotics in a fun, hands-on learning environment using the Robot Virtual World simulator for the ROBOTC language.
WeDo Robotics (Grades 2-5)
KIDTEC Online Tutoring Academy’s WeDo course teaches children how to build and program LEGO® models featuring working motors, motion and tilt sensors, and sounds by using LEGO® WeDo Robotics software. Kids have 12 models to choose from Dancing Birds, Spinner, Hungry Alligator, Drumming Monkey, Roaring Lion, Goal Kicker, Goal Keeper, Cheerful Fans, Bird, Airplane, Giant, and Sailboat! Students learn how robotics interacts with the world around us.
Introduction to NXT Robotics (Grades 5-12)
KIDTEC Online Tutoring Academy’s NXT Robotics introduces middle school students to building and programming robots using the LEGO Mindstorms NXT Robotics System. Students will practice construction and programming with the NXT intelligent brick with servo style motors and ultrasonic sensors. Students build and program robots to move, react, and make sounds in order to solve challenges. Perfect for students who are interested in robotics competitions!
All courses have student workbooks to reinforce learning. Essential for the kinesthetic learner!
