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!
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.
An interesting project by one of the teens in our 3D printing camps. The student designed this cup by himself and got it printed.
The result – a piece of art he can call his own!
Students can truly create interesting things – we just have to let them imagine.
After a busy and successful run of the Autumn Maker Camps, we are back with modules that are exciting, engaging and fun.
Engineering, electronics, robotics, coding, 3D printing – there is so much to look out for!
Don't miss this exciting, upcoming Winter School Holiday Program – only in Melbourne! Register now on our website.
At Tech Summer School, teens will get a chance to learn about the world of creative 3D printing. They will learn how 3D printed objects are made and how it all works. Plus, they will get a chance to design models and attractive pieces of art.
3D printing is a revolution and will bring out the maker in your teen.
Last few seats available! Sign up before you miss out below!
