We currently offer courses at schools in Miami-Dade County and are working on expanding to Broward County. If you want one of these programs brought to your school, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Raspberry Pi and Python (ages 11-18)
In this class we cover the coding with python, a programing language common in professional environments and good for beginner programmers due to it's similarities to English, using Raspberry Pi, a versatile single-board computer which is good for small-scale projects and the instruction of computing. As the course advances and students become more proficient in Python, students begin learning physical computing, using sensors, leds, buttons, and more. Students in this course will learn basic programming, problem solving, physical computing, and Linux operations.
Lego Mindstorms EV3™ Robotics (ages 10-14)
A robotics kit designed to increase interest in robotics and teach students the basics of sensors, structure design, and programing. Classes begin with an introduction to brick programming and basic structure and advances to block programing on the Mindstorms software and more advanced bots using sensors to interact with their environments and each other and continues further to programing the bots with micro python for EV3 and expansion sets which allow for more complex designs. This course places an emphasis on collaborative work and covers lessons but not limited to: inputs and outputs, design planning, structural integrity, torque, center of mass, data types, if statements, and problem solving while working.
Lego Education™ Simple Machines (ages 7-10)
Giving students an understanding of what simple machines are and how they can be used with each other, by themselves, or integrated into a larger project, Lego Simple Machines allow students to learn building basics and structural design. With machines such as a pulley, wheel and axel, and gear setup, this course will allow students to gain an interest in design and building and gain a head start in science.
Play Osmo (ages 3-5)
Play Osmo utilizes tactile feedback and response to combine the stimulated learning children experience by touching and interacting with objects with the convenience, fun, and feedback of a video game by using physical blocks that are transferred to a game on an iPad using a camera. Play Osmo sets include spelling, shape recognition and spatial awareness, and coding. They are a fun and interactive way to advance your child's learning and development.
