Program Goals

A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish

BrainTech Robotics Learning Program makes it real for all its participants. We strive to empower young minds to see the value and experience the gratification in STEM based activities while developing both their hard and soft skills.

Young minds that choose to participate in the program develop a value for hard work, innovation and creativity. They learn the importance of organizing, project planning and testing work in a collaborative environment, sharing ideas and respect the rights and dignity of others as well as themselves. Not to mention the mad skills in CAD design and programming and assembly of complex designs they will acquire.

Life Skills – Learning About Science & Technology to Solve the Real World Issues

On average more than 90% of the student participants in such programs learn more about how science and technology can be used to solve real world problems. What they learn here is through a 100% interactive experience; designing, assembling, programming, problem solving, collaborating, competing, winning.

It has been reported that these types of programs produce eighty percent (80%) or more demonstrated interest with a goal oriented focus in doing well at school in math and science; a deeper drive that translates to more engineering, science and tech post secondary registrations by females.

A great number of the participants (+90% approx.) of similar programs, report having acquired greater life learning skills through programming, teamwork, planning and problem solving, time management, collaboration and negotiation skills.

BrainTech Competition Training

This is a 6-14 week training session at competition levels designed to fully prepare different age groups of BrainTech teams to be competent at all aspects of the FIRST Robotics Competition. We ensure that each student in every team we build and submit has the right tools, training and knowledge to compete and be successful at meeting the challenges of the Jr. FLL®, FLL®, FTC®, FRC®; depending on the challenge for students, mentors and coaches. It is designed to align individuals with coaches, team mates (5-10 per team)* in preparation for competition. The program is designed to provide the guidance and structure required to be a successful competitor / participant at the FIRST LEGO Competitions and various SciTech Fairs; students develop their collaborative team building, problem solving, proposal and technical writing skills.

**Team sizes are based on the level of competition and challenge complexity
In the competition training of robotics, students take the concepts they learn in their core classes and apply them to real life problems where they are challenged to think critically and come up with creative solutions. They working in teams, using LEGO building elements, motors and sensors, to build robots to solve challenges in preparation for upcoming FIRST LEGO League robotics competitions

BrainTech Robotics Training

This is an exciting introduction to robots, assembly and programming using LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Robotics System. Learn mechanical design, construction, programming and teamwork skills. In pairs, using LEGO building elements, motors and sensors, students build different robots and program them with a computer to move, react and make sounds to solve challenges. This class is a good introduction for young minds interested in robotics and the possibility of moving on to competitions such as FIRST LEGO League.

Hands-On Methodology

Hands-on STEM learning

(BTR) BrainTech Robotics STEM LC's program integrates the core standards of STEM into its robotics and drone lessons to provide a complete hands-on STEM learning experience. We’ve combined the existing 5E inquiry-based learning theories with industry professional mentors to connect the learning experience with real life career situations. Using humanoid robots, avatars and drones add unique, cool and hands-on and experiencial factors not common to classrooms.

We know that students want more Hands-on, Real-World experiences that results in a more tangible and retained learing experience.  BTR's core strength and value proposition is in deliverring "Out-of-Class" experiences; deliverred by Industry Subject Matter Experts (ISME).  Who better to tell you how and why a drone, robot or unmanned autonomous vehicle (UAV) is the perfect choice for select hazardous geological missions than a scientist or engineer who builds and /or operates them.

According to a survey:

  • 81 percent of students are interested in science in at least one of three disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology)
  • 73 percent of those from a survey sited a key interest in biology above the rest
  • Only 32 percent had known an adult in a science career and fewer still if the career involved physics or chemistry

The results of the survey was based on 1,569 online surveys completed by high school students attending US based public and high schools.

Further details regarding the survey can be found at: AMGEN Foundation: Inspiring The Young Scientists of Tomorrow
