Our goal at Bright & Smart is to teach kids basic Engineering and Computer Programming Skills, and facilitate the development of 21st Century Learning Skills, such as; Information & Media Literacy, Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, and Interpersonal & Collaborative Skills.
All engineers know, coding is the language of computers. Using state of the art hardware and software, students will design, create and learn to communicate with computers. This skill will allow them to program their own interactive stories, games, and animations – and learn how to share their creations on the web.
Coding is all fine and good, but the real fun comes when you can put your code into action! Using a special edition of Lego bricks and a curriculum developed primarily for them, students will learn to design, create, build, and program an array of Lego robots. Team Work and Passion will be necessary to complete this mission.
Building a robot is fun, but creating unique parts for them is even better! Using a 3D Printer, along with a particular set of Lego Bricks, students will challenge their imagination by designing and printing 3D objects that will be added to their machines. They will need to be creative and persistent in making one of a kind add-ons for their robots!
Apps & Mods
Knowing how to communicate is the first step, but using it to create applications and MODS for typical programs and games is pure mastery. Using games like Minecraft, and drag&drop software, students will overcome complex challenges using their own code and learn how to share their creations on the web.
A robot more versatile than Lego? Only here with us, students learn how to create one from scratch, using materials such as microcontrollers, servos, electronic components, circuit boards, 3D printed pieces and much more! Students will build their own unique robot and will learn to program it using a drag&drop programming environment as well as being able to control it with their very own Android app.
Your child, with Bright & Smart, doesn't just learn all the individual skills of being an Engineer, we teach them everything necessary to be successful in their future. Teamwork, Persistence, Critical Thinking, Innovative Spirit, and Solid Educational Structure. Students will learn all of this and more. The true secrets to becoming the best engineer.
