IRIS Lego Robotics S.T.E.A.M based Programn
At the Institute of Robotics and Intelligent Systems (IRIS) we provide STEAM-based Toronto District School Board (TDSB) approved learning programs that utilize robot technology. Through our hands-on approach, students have the opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics concepts in an interactive and enjoyable learning environment. We encourage students to appreciate the significance of robotic systems, the growing number of uses and the potential that it holds.
LEGO WEDO ROBOTICS (AGES 4-8)
The LEGO WEDO Robotics program is specifically designed as an intermediate step between the more fully featured robotics platform and regular, non-robotic LEGO. Students will be working with gears, pulleys, motors and sensors to construct, program and control robots.
LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 (AGES 9-17)
LEGO Mindstorms EV3 is designed for those with no programming background and introduces students to concepts such as coding, looping, decision making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop programming interface.
ARDUINO (AGES 9-16)
Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform which can read inputs and turn the inputs into outputs. Students will have access to everything required to complete 16 circuits which will teach students to read sensors, display information on an LCD, drive motors and more. Students will learn how to connect each circuit with the included parts.
*Note, a minimum of 8 students is required for each program to run*
Program Cost: $225 (HST Included) for 6 Sessions. Note, a 5% sibling discount can be applied to siblings.
Program Dates & Time: Mondays, 4-5pm: January 21, 28, February 4, 11, 25 and March 4, 2019.
