Aerial Robotics – The Force Up High

Aerial Robotics – The Force Up High

Many of us love drones! Drones come in various shapes and sizes and really make for an exciting way to discover and be a part of aerial robotics.

Drones are nice to fly and they have a lot to offer but how many of us understand how they work, how to use them wisely and safely and where to fly them? Plus, deepen our understanding of aerodynamics and gravity, how they can be coded and more.

Aerial robotics is great for students to understand concepts behind drones rather than just become consumers of such advanced technology. There is so much to learn, understand and also take flight!

Innovate’s first Aerial Robotics (Drones) holiday module was a great success with students flying drones through obstacles which were challenging to navigate and flying drones through simulation scenarios!

Have you been on the ground long enough? It’s time to take your learning to greater heights with Aerial Robotics. Fly high this coming Spring 2017 by checking out our holiday programs.

 

Why Learn To Code

Why Learn To Code

Coding has been around for quite some time and in fact, it is such an important skill which will only serve as an advantage if one knows how to code. Yes, also to prepare for the jobs of the future, but other than that, there are quite a few things kids can learn from coding. Just take a look at the list.

  • Get out of one’s comfort zone and take on challenges
  • Learn a variety of programming languages
  • Improve the ability to focus
  • Develop computational thinking skills
  • Develop problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Take on an iterative approach to problem solving
  • Be able to analyze errors and think of solutions
  • Enhance Digital Literacy skills
  • Build confidence and creativity
  • Prepare for secondary education and projects at school and higher learning
  • Get up-skilled for the future
  • Develop patience, resilience and strong leadership skills in managing technology
  • Create something that does something for someone – a small step to changing the world
  • Develop one’s Persistence, Patience and Perseverance (the 3 P’s of programming)
  • Build one’s teamwork skills
  • Remove the fear of failure and turn it into a learning process
  • Make logical attempts to solve a problem

At Innovate Technology and Robotics Academy, we do not fear failure. We fear not having tried our best. Journey with us at our 2017 Coding Academy and take on learning how to code and becoming Digitally Literate. Take a hold of technology and use it to help you succeed.

Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes. – Oscar Wilde

Innovate Academy conducts STEM workshops in Mauritius

Innovate Academy conducts STEM workshops in Mauritius

Innovate Technology and Robotics Academy is proud to have been invited by the Mauritius Government to conduct STEM workshops for kids and keynote presentations to the public.

Innovate Academy was invited to conduct keynotes on STEM education at the largest InfoTech show held in early December 2016. It was truly an enjoyable occasion to be able to bring our expertise on STEM subjects, robotics in the classroom and inspire the youth in Mauritius to explore and discover innovative solutions used in Innovate Technology and Robotics Academy’s programs in Melbourne, Australia.

Thank you for the honour, MRC. We are grateful  for the wonderful opportunity to meet and train such fantastic students in Mauritius.

National Science Week 2016

National Science Week 2016

National Science Week 2016 – A celebration of Droids, Drones and Robots!

What a fantastic week we all had visiting schools and presenting keynotes on Robots, Droids and Drones, plus engaging high school students in the area of coding. We brought along our robot friends to the schools.

It was fun getting students to dance with the humanoids, together with their synchronized dance moves, making everyone laugh – that is what STEM subjects should be. That is what we would like learning to be.

In the meantime, the robots are tired and taking a well deserved rest while the other robots get ready for the upcoming Innovate National Science Week Challenge Vex Robotics competition this Saturday, 20 August 2016 at Forest Hill College. We can’t wait!
