The Young Inventor and Young Explorer programs concluded this week with a blast!
The Young Explorers got to use Space kits, the Littlebits, Cubelets and MaKey- MaKey to create various projects. The one day program had kids exploring and creating from the beginning. They learnt how circuits are made and even dabbled with the fun Cubelets. The program gave the young students from Grades 1 to 4 a taste of electronics and modular robotics which proved to be very engaging and interactive!
Young Inventors got up to much, tackling Nature's Fury Challenge with their EV3 robots, with discussions about various storms and natural disasters! The Vex IQ Add It Up Camp had the Young Inventors challenged at first with some of its mechanical parts, however, all of them overcame those building challenges to have completed robots, all ready to program and drive! Students gave these camps the thumbs up during their reflections. We will post their feedback and testimonials up
Robotics Club even got busy at the Melbourne Zoo earlier this week with an array of Vex IQ and EV3 robots for the students who are part of the "Youth at the Zoo" program. Students at Melbourne Zoo got up to creating an animal themed robot! It was interesting to see them create in a short time frame – well done!
Next week brings the Teen Innovators Vex Robotics Camp and we are looking forward to that!
