PROGRAMS IN DEVELOPMENT

We hope to bring these programs to the STEM Center soon. If you would like to assist with the development of these programs- please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.

ROBOTICS & TECHNOLOGY

The Robotics & Technology program incorporates building robotic kits, powered/unpowered flight experiments and remote-control vehicles to demonstrate a variety of science and technology principles. The program’s objectives are to teach hand, eye and brain spatial coordination, scientific inquiry and discipline to the students while facilitating a better understanding of mathematics and science. 

 

Building robotic kits i.e. forklifts, cars, and robotic arms, help the students understand the link between robots and jobs. These guideline objectives will be accomplished by the following methodologies:

    • Introduction to robotic sensors, actuators, and motors that make robots functional
    • Alternative sources of energy (solar, wind, fuel cell) as power sources for robots 
    • Construction of robotic kits  
    • Training software and experiments to improve problem-solving skills
    • Sustained contact with students through a monthly remote control vehicle science club
    • Understanding why a device that does not operate as planned, requiring the use of an investigative process and forming a hypothesis 
    • Devising a hypothesis regarding the assembly protocol

 

In addition to the classroom workshops, hands-on experiments and two weekend field trips will be used in conjunction with the classroom sessions to cultivate an interest in science. An objective will also be to expose the students to various careers in science, technology and manufacturing-related careers. 

CYBER DRONE TECHNOLOGY CAMP

Cyber Drones are becoming an important tool in the military, civil, national security, law enforcement, environmental, marine research/exploration, petroleum and agricultural industries. Exposing youth to this type of technology is critical to preparing them for the future. This camp will be an eight day summer camp.
