Robotronics Winter Camps are Here!

Activity-Based learning is the new call for educators in India. With CCE becoming a norm in all CBSE schools, all parents and teachers are looking for options where learning can be more than talk-and-chalk.

Robotics is a field of technology that combines 3 subjects together – Science, Mathematics and Computer Science. This is why we feel Robotics is a great way to implement Activity Based Learning for children for the following reasons:

Work in Collaboration – “Relate”: Robotics activities emphasize on team efforts that involve communication, planning, management and social skills.

Work on Projects – “Create”: Robotics projects make learning a creative and purposeful activity. Students have to define the project (problem domain) and focus their efforts on application of ideas to a specific context.

Work towards a change – “Donate”: Robotics activates stresses on the value of making a useful contribution while learning. The idea that the project can be utilized in real-life situation makes the learning more meaningful.

Robotronics Workshops are being conducted from 3rd Jan to 7th Jan in different centers across Delhi NCR. Says Program Coordinator Swati Sharma,"We have got great feedback from the parents and students after the Summer Camp conducted in May 2011."

The Robotronics Workshops are being conducted at 6 different centers in the Delhi-NCR region - Gurgaon (2 centers), South Delhi, Noida, Connaught Place, Pitampura, Dwarka

Concepts Learnt During the Workshops

Level 1: Mechanical Robots

1. Science: Designing Simple and Complex Machines, Motion, Force, Acceleration, Pulleys, Transfer of Motion etc.
