STEAM Course for Primary Schools: Full STEAM ahead!

Course Description

This is the perfect course to introduce the primary school teacher to advancements in technology and ways to create a classroom ready for the 21st-century challenges!

The course includes three major Robotics platforms: The Edison robot, the Lego Boost Kit and the Lego EV3 kit. We will be diving into all these platforms with hands-on building and coding. We will expand on ways teachers can incorporate it into their curriculum, and we will be creating lesson plans for different disciplines. Additionally, we will be presenting platforms that include material that a teacher can utilise and enrol the students, which will earn badges improving the course’s gamification aspect upon completion of a given task or exercise.

We will then move on to 3D Modelling and Printing and see the different 3D printing technologies and affordable solutions for a school classroom 3d printer. We will design and print objects which will complement specific topics such as Science, Mathematics and Music.

We will introduce VR and AR in education and see games and simulations which can enhance the classroom with our state-of-the-art VR equipment (Oculus Rift S).

Lastly, we will learn to fly and code mini drones (DJI Tello EDU) and see how they can play an enrichment role in your classroom.

Topics Include

• Robotics with Edison Robot.
• Meet the award-winning “Coding and Robotics” platform for teachers and students.
• Robotics with Lego Boost.
• Meet the “CodeSkills4Robotics” platform for teachers and students.
