Our program is thoughtfully designed to inspire and educate students through weekly sessions held in public schools across Orange County and Osceola County. By combining coding and robotics, we aim to provide an enriching experience that equips children with essential skills while fostering a passion for STEM fields.

Each week, our program offers a dynamic blend of coding activities and hands-on robotics projects, aiming to cultivate a deep understanding of technology and its real-world applications. Through interactive learning experiences, students are encouraged to explore, experiment, and collaborate, fostering critical thinking, problem-solving, and teamwork.

To discover whether our program is available at your child’s school and the specific day it is offered, we encourage you to contact us. We are committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to engage with our program, igniting their curiosity and enthusiasm for STEM subjects.

At the heart of our program is the belief that early exposure to STEM, coding, and robotics lays the groundwork for future success. Participating in our afterschool program will equip students to not only gain technical skills but also develop the confidence and creativity necessary to thrive in an increasingly technology-driven world.

We are dedicated to providing a supportive and inclusive learning environment, where each child can explore their interests and unleash their full potential. Join us in shaping the next generation of innovators and problem solvers through our STEM Coding and Robotics Afterschool Program.

CURRICULUM

    Coding is an essential set of instructions that a robot can read and execute. Robotics combines the use of electronics, mechanics, and coding software to program robots to do particular jobs.

    Students design algorithms and then develop and test programs to control a range of robotic systems. Robots are mechanical or virtual artificial agents, typically guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry. Here students will learn how to design and code robots.

    Students will study the history of building design and its structure. They will be introduced to using Sketchup and several computer-aided designs (CAD). This class covers the basic theories, strategies, and concepts of form, shape, symmetry, and patterns in the physical world and how to translate them onto paper. Students learn to combine design with aesthetics and weigh those considerations against time, quality, and cost.

    There’s something magical about the art of traditional animation. It’s inspiring to see a rough drawing transform into a living, breathing character. The hands-on feeling of crafting motion, emotion, and believability from just a few drawings is a powerful experience.

    2D animation can be an incredibly expressive dynamic form of entertainment and artistic creation. In 2D Animation for Beginners, we’ll explore the roots of traditional animation using modern, digital tools used within the studio environment today.

    Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field that combines several types of engineering; electrical, computer, and mechanical. Mechatronics is a skill set needed in the advanced automated manufacturing industry. Students will learn how to create simpler and smarter systems due to being multi-faceted. Mechatronics is an essential foundation for the expected growth in automation and manufacturing.


 

Join us today and watch your child's creativity and curiosity soar as they discover the exciting world of engineering!
