Digital Technology Training in Adelaide
Adelaide Robotics Academy organises Robotics, Engineering, App Development and Game Development courses throughout the school year as an after-school club at Thebarton Community Centre every day from Monday to Friday from 4 PM to 6 PM. The STEM Curriculum is aligned with ACARA (the Australian Curriculum).
Each lesson is 60 minutes. The same class will run Monday to Friday, so the children only need to attend one session per week. All you have to do is choose a day and time (e.g. Tuesdays from 5 to 6) and visit Eventbrite to lock in your spot. There will be 9-11 lessons per term, and the cost is $25/lesson. All payments are processed through the Eventbrite website.
The recommended age is 9+ (Grade 4). Although there is no compulsory minimum age and we’ve had brilliant Grade 1 to 3 students, we learned from previous years that children under 9 sometimes lack the necessary attention span.
For the Robotics class, students do not have to bring their own laptops or robots, as we will use our own devices. For the App and/or Game Development there will be a limited number of laptops available.
Each class can have a maximum of 6 students so there are very limited places available. Book your place now to avoid disappointment!
They use to call it the future. Now it’s the present!
Coding is telling a computer or a robot what you want it to do. Teachers and experts declared programming the ‘new literacy’ because all students need to know the basics to excel in our rapidly changing world. Learning how to code prepares children for the world we live in today.
Today’s kids are very much interested in science and technology. They also know that knowledge in the field will open up new career opportunities. To kindle interest in those areas, youngsters should engage in technology activities, which will help build up mastery of essential technologies, and invigorate the classroom.
Robotics can boost students’ problem-solving skills, teamwork, creativity, and technical knowledge in an engaging, collaborative way.
It’s their career!
Progress in technology is happening every single day. Children learn the benefits of robotics and their place in society today. Otherwise, they will be left at a distinct disadvantage when they graduate, having fewer career and study possibilities than those who have already grasped the educational concept of what robotics can do and how they do it.
It helps with decision making
Understanding cause and effect is an indispensable life skill that we try to prepare our children for birth. These simple ideas are easy to grasp, but as you get older, decisions are harder to make. With problem-solving and critical thinking skills, excellent and quick decision-making becomes a lot easier. Building and programming robots go hand-in-hand with problem-solving and taps directly into a child’s natural curiosity, which is precisely where great ideas and life-changing inventions are born.
It assists in problem-solving
A natural “how does it do that” reply from kids leads to crucial critical thinking skills. Youngsters learn to rationalise and reason when learning about and to imagine a robots potential. Finding out just how robotics can help with problem-solving, leads to the conception of infinite other possibilities and the opportunity to understand out just how to make them happen. Just because your child battles to figure out a math problem on paper, doesn’t mean they don’t have the ability for maths. Robotics develops fun, practical reasoning and problem solving that children don’t even realise they are learning.
It helps with STEM at school!
Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths are not only for the school nerds. The benefits of learning these subjects spread across all areas of life and in every career choice. In this technological era, STEM encourages reasoning and teach the type of thinking skills that 21st-century adults will need in a world where the use of robotics will enhance almost everything.
It’s Programming, it’s the future!
The world’s future is based not just on being able to use technology, but also in developing it. To learn robotics children need to be exposed to computer programming. There is already a gap in the career market for coders, and continual advancements in technology only serve to highlight the value of robotics training. Discovering new ways to increase interest in STEM subjects, and their importance to the exciting world our youngsters will soon be living in is becoming a crucial part of their education.
