Grade 9-12: Robotics-After-School-Workshop

High School Robotics After School Workshop is a weekday after school program for "Tinker-minded" kids to discover their passion for Engineering, Robotics, and Programming.  At our workshops, young STEMticians will work together in teams to bring their ideas to life!

We nurture and empower our STEMticians to develop 21st-century skills – problem-solving, creativity, and collaboration as they build and program robots.

The program includes both structured activities and unstructured independent workshop time to explore and complete challenging lesson plans building robots for real-world applications. 

WHEN 

8 sessions | 4 weeks | 2 hours per session

Time | 4:00pm-6pm

AGE GROUP | 11-17 years old

PRICE | $400 / 4 weeks

We offer a limited number of program scholarships. The application deadline is one month before the program begins and we will get back to successful scholarship recipients about 1-2 weeks before the program begins!

STEMticians will:

  • Use LEGO engineering kits, online digital tools and receive guidance from an instructor-led e-learning lesson plan
  • Have their own project book to plan, draw and document their ideas and projects
  • Learn how to generate ideas, make a plan and celebrate failures

BrainTech Robotics STEM teaching philosophy:

  • Project-based learning – learning by doing
  • Interest-based learning – learning by following your interests
  • Peer-to-peer learning – learn from and teach each other in the classroom
  • Networked learning – learn by seeking online and offline resources
  • Reflect & present – learn by keeping track of your projects and present them to a real audience

BrainTech Robotics STEM Learning Values:

  • Lifelong learning
  • Inclusivity
  • Curiosity
  • Creative Confidence
  • Collaboration
  • Problem Solving
  • Critical Thinking

Droneology Curriculum Details

Real-World Applications

Every student engages with our industry subject matter expert in real-world applications that help acquire and align skillset.  The task involving the designing, building and programming of drones to meet real-world applications ensures students experience and answer to the question "WHY" Math, Physics, and other core subjects are important to acquire.

Designed for middle and high school students, BrainTech Robotics STEM Droneology programs are built around three real-world scenarios: 

  • effective and efficient delivery systems
  • search, rescue and discovery emergency services
  • surveillance, reconnaissance and security

Each scenerio is worked on by the students and led by industry subject matter experts (ISME) to ensure a significant connection by each student is achieved. 

There are 4 modules to the program (beginner, intermediate, advanced and competitive-race) Each level consists of 20hrs. min.

Student Resources

Discover Drones uses three student-driven curriculum pieces, LABCards, Droneology and FPV Freerider.

LABCards

The LABCard approach is intended to provide a tool that enables a more student-directed experience. BrainTech Robotics Instructors are empowered to provide more facilitation, coaching and mentoring as students work independently and in their own fashion. Almost all of BTR STEM learning environments utilize LABCard curriculum for after-school workshop and camp learning models.

Each LABCard includes:

  • Two step-by-step projects that introduce new concepts and skills by guiding students through self-driven activities.
  • Two engaging challenges that take learners through the completion of Droneology, training on the flight simulator and the honing of their piloting skills.
  • A final design project that gives students an opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in an open-ended way.
  • Key Terms are listed at the end of each card for reference.
  • Along the bottom of most cards is a Droneology checklist, listing videos to watch and quizzes to pass before moving onto the next card.
  • At the end of every level, an End Design Project challenges students to synthesize their learning with creativity, critical thinking and real-world relevance.

Droneology

Coupled with hands-on, experiential learning, Discover Drones also utilizes the online educational app, Droneology, a fast-paced, interactive online course that prepares pilots of all skill levels for safe and responsible drone entertainment. Droneology covers topics of safety, laws and regulations, flight basics and the many uses of drones! This digital course is optimized for use on mobile devices, allowing easy access from phones, tablets or computers, anytime, anywhere.

FPV Freerider

FPV FreeRider is a top-of-the-line flight simulator for pilots-in-training. As a critical part of the Droneology curriculum, logging hours on the flight simulator allows students to hone their piloting skills without running the risk of crashing a real drone!

Coupled with hands-on, experiential learning, Discover Drones also utilizes the online educational app, Droneology, a fast-paced, interactive online course that prepares pilots of all skill levels for safe and responsible drone entertainment.
