ENROLL - YOUNG EXPLORER WINTER HOLIDAY PROGRAM 2019EXPLORE AUGMENTED REALITY AND ROBOTICS ON 26 SEPTEMBER 2019

Grades: Grade 1 and 2
Date: 26 September 2019 , Thursday
Time: 9.00am – 3.00pm (1 day program)
Location: Forest Hill College, Burwood East, Vic
Cost: $150 (includes GST)

This is an integrated robotics module for Juniors with both Ozobot and Augmented Reality. A new module specially for Juniors who would like to explore STEM subjects and future technologies.
Robotics
Juniors will learn visual coding, how robots work in their environments, respond to codes (visual codes) and make decisions with a variety of enjoyable, hands on tasks and experiments. Juniors learn about robots in a fun way and pick up new skills in this journey as they discover how robots help with many jobs.
Augmented Reality (Junior Friendly)
Augmented Reality (AR) is rapidly changing our world and merging both our physical and virtual experiences and environments. Used in gaming, design, marketing, navigation and more, AR makes everything just that little bit more special. Augmented reality adds a digital layer over the real world environment there and then.
Juniors will understand how AR technology allows for virtual objects to be placed in the real world in real time which enhances our information about the world we are in.  Juniors will use AR (specially designed activities for younger children in this program) in the classroom to create their own special digital layers and enhance their digital experiences.

STUDENTS WILL LEARN:

  • Learn how robots work in their given environment
  • Understand the sensors Ozobot  has
  • Visual coding  and how they work with the robots
  • Understand how robots respond to code
  • Background of Augmented Reality
  • How to add a digital layer over the real world

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT:

  • Hands on experience
  • Visual Coding
  • Fundamentals of robotics and coding
  • Problem solving
  • Collaborating in teams
  • Future Technology discovery

What Will Students Take Home?

  • Certificate of Completion
  • Photos and videos of completed projects – Bring your own camera
