LEGO WeDo 2.0 for Junior Students

LEGO WeDo 2.0 for Junior Students

LEGO WeDO 2.0 comes to Innovate Academy! Hurray!

Over the past 5 years, our junior students have been growing and learning robotics with WeDo 1.0 and it has been tons of fun and learning. Not only have the juniors made various cute models, they have also discovered how things work in the process.

Putting the pieces together have been challenging for some children, but most of them, with the right attitude, have continued to persevere and achieved their goals at Innovate Academy.

The beauty of WeDo 1.0 was the way it made robotics simple and fun for the young ones and it certainly built up the confidence of younger kids.

However, WeDo 2.0 takes it all forward literally! Our contraptions can now move away! Yes, we cannot wait to explore this with the juniors at Innovate Academy and at Innovate Tech Camps (our upcoming Spring Holiday Camps). Book your Junior’s place today!

WeDo 2.0 here we come exploring!

Drones

Drones

Over the past year, Innovate Tech Camps has launched a module on Aerial Robotics which focused specifically on drones and drone technology.

Drones are amazing because they can do so much. Aerial media can be collected for industries, monitoring traffic, inspections of buildings, towers and bridges etc. Instead of making people climb up roofs and other dangerously high places, drones can be sent to take photos or conduct various inspections which is great progress. Technology should be used for dangerous jobs so that people do not have to take those risks.

At Innovate, students learn about drones, how they are used, why they are becoming important, how they work and other facts about drones. Plus, they learn how to handle drones and fly responsibly through set tasks.

Through Aerial Robotics, students understand the amazing things about drone technology and how this technology impacts the world and they start to think more deeply about the various industries that will greatly benefit from using drones – which is what innovation is all about.
