TEEN INNOVATOR TECH SUMMER SCHOOL JANUARY 2018

The Teen Innovator Programs are designed with the teen in mind. The Teen Inventor Program infuses leadership and good core values together with technology, coding and robotics.  The programs enable teens to learn more about themselves and discover their talents while learning about robotics and other up to date technologies. This series was created to emphasize innovation and its importance in the education of today. Teens will learn the value of resilience, other good values and how to problem solve, which will bring out the leader in them as they prepare for their future careers.

Course Description: Robot Arm Project (Arduino System)

Prerequisite: No prior experience in robotics required. Student should come with a positive attitude to learning new technology.  BYOD – Windows laptop or MacBook.

Grades 7 to 12 | Date: 8 to 12  January 2018, Monday to Friday| Time: 9.00am – 3.00pm (5 Day program) | Forest Hill College, Burwood East, Vic |  Cost: $550

A week long course, the Robotic Arm Project is for students in high school with an interest in robotics and automation systems. Students are provided step-by-step guidelines on building a mini desktop robot arm in a week. Students may do the course even if they have no prior robotic skills, though if they do, it would be a plus. Students will indulge in the world of mechanical assembly, electric circuit design, fundamental programming and creativity with a whole heap of fun. Plus students will design and 3D print their own robot part as part of the project.

Students are expected to Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOD). Materials for construction and other learning resources are fully provided for use in the classroom. Students are encouraged to bring a camera to film their project.

Advanced project available for returning students
