BTR’s formulas to set students up for success in the tech-driven world

#1 BTR’s 1st Formula for Success… Education + Engagement = Empowered Youth

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education bridges the gap between theoretical learning and practical application. Using this principle, the workshop familiarizes students with the digital universe that is so deeply integrated with our world. By way of thrill-inducing, real-life problems involved in drone building, coding and flying, the workshop makes physics laws, math formulas, engineering design basics and programming codes clear and interesting for students.

 

#2 BTR’s 2nd Formula for Success… STEM + SEL = Holistic Development

STEM activities like drone building, coding & flying give students a taste of the real-world challenges helping them gain skills like creative & critical thinking, team collaboration & contribution, perseverance and many more. Using the creative and collaborative nature of drone activities, the workshop aims at developing students’ social and emotional intelligence as well. The workshop provides students with a safe space to explore their full potential and equips them with tools to deal with stress productively. The ultimate goal is to have well adjusted, empathetic youth who grow up to be contributing members of society.

 

#3 BTR’s 3rd Formula for Success… Drone Building + Drone Coding + Drone Flying = Most Fun Way to Learn

Maneuvering a drone is inarguably one of the most fun activities for students of all ages. The workshop uses this enjoyable pursuit to build a very desirable and versatile set of hard and soft skills in students. The workshop provides students with a DIY Lego-type drone that they will build, aka engineer, themselves. They will then learn the many facets of droneology and team up with fellow students to plan and code a cool aerial show by way of a 4-stage mission.

FAQs

No, the course does not require students to have any prior knowledge. The workshop covers all the laws, applications and concepts required for students to complete the final 4-stage mission with their drones.

This droneology program is a one-of-a-kind initiative by BrainTech Robotics to empower youth and promote digital, social and emotional literacy. Backed by the Government of Canada and the City of Toronto, the program broadens the scope of STEM education with the inclusion of Arts (STEAM, if you will). This gives students an opportunity to learn STEM concepts and explore their creative and artistic abilities. Like all BTR-powered programs, this workshop also focuses on students’ holistic development by coupling STEAM education with SEL.

Simply because we teach students in a way that is enjoyable and consumable for them. Instead of forcing theory down their throats, our after-school programs are designed to give students hands-on experience with the practical applications of what they are learning. We also foster an emotionally healthy environment where students can learn and grow at their own pace.

Yes, Green P parking is available at Fort York Natural Historic Site, Toronto History Museums the location of the workshop.

The introductory, and beginner workshops will use scratch block-based visual programming to control drones and rover functions.  Python programming language will be introduced as kids transition into intermediate and advanced workshops.

As part of the STEM program, BTR infuses Social Emotional Learning components.  Thus hands-on access to the lab equipment will always be shared in a team formation of 2-5 students depending on the size and nature of the apparatus.

All our apparatus can be purchased by the parent of a registered student provided it has never been unboxed and used in the workshop. (see BTR Admin.)

LiteBee Drones are designed to stop all motion on contact or when sensing adverse resistance.  The actual blade composition and spin rate are not enough to cut or cause severe injury.
