What is Bright & Smart Robotics?
Bright & Smart Robotics is the best hands-on adventure in robotics that amazes kids and parents alike! Bright & Smart welcomes all future engineers and scientists, 6 to 14 years old, where children learn robot assembly and computer programming in a fun-filled experience that fosters Engineering Skills such as teamwork, critical thinking and problem solving.
What do children learn?
Teamwork activities help them learn the importance of negotiation, taking turns and playing different roles while working with their peers.
Computer Programming improves and develops their logical, critical and creative thinking skills.
Robot Assembly structures their minds to solve problems by breaking them into smaller pieces and subsequently solving each individual one.
What is the structure of the program?
Bright & Smart Robotics is shaped in modules. Every module is taught in sessions of 8-12 classes (depending on the school or facility where they are being offered at) held once per week. Our program has been designed to allow every child to work at his/her own pace while moving through the material of the module.
How many modules are there and what are their names?
There are four progressive and cumulative modules. Each module has its own objectives focused on developing important Engineering Skills.
Their names are: “Starter Programmer & Designer”, “Junior Programmer & Designer”, “Senior Programmer & Designer” and “Master Programmer & Designer”.
Can children participate in several sessions?
Yes, if they would like to continue to learn more advanced skills in Computer Programming and Robot Assembly. The average child can take up to 3 sessions in order to fulfill the “Starter Programmer and Designer” module.
How are the classes organized?
Each class is divided into two main sections as follows: During the first half, kids learn computer programming by using programming languages designed by first tier universities, and completing several activities on and off of the computer. In the second half, kids learn the principles of robot assembly using LEGOS, the principles of robot programming using ROBOLAB™, and the principles of teamwork by working as a team.
How are the groups shaped for advanced students?
We work in small groups of up to 15 children per class. In order to achieve the objectives of the program, they are grouped in teams of 3 kids according to their abilities, skills, and/or age.
How do I know how much progress my child has achieved?
At the end of each session they receive a folder to take home with a summary of the activities that your son/daughter completed. They also receive a Certificate of Participation.
