misc_none 5:00 PM  -  6:30 PM Robotics with Intercultural Awareness Class Grades 2-5   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

RoboAha is a new program that uniquely blends cutting-edge robotics with cultural and communication studies. It aims to equip children with engineering sense, cultivate their cross-cultural perspectives and global mindedness, and enhance their critical thinking, writing, and presentation skills. Special projects are developed to help children achieve greater intercultural communication competence while catering to their interest in robotics..

Be Creative. Be Cooperative. Be a Maker- In the robotics section, children will explore the field of robotics using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robotics sets. They will learn the basics of mobile systems, motors, sensors, and programming by designing and building different theme-based robots through which they will apply the social/cultural concepts learned in the intercultural awareness section (see below). (Skill Level: beginner)

Be Aware. Be Prepared. Be Involved - In the intercultural awareness part, children will take a cross-cultural journey by watching foreign and domestic age-appropriate films. Through guided film review writing and discussion, they will gain insights about and appreciation for their own and other cultural groups, increase their self-awareness and self-reflexivity about their cultural identities, develop their ability to communicate effectively with people from diverse cultures, and think critically about the dynamics of intercultural relationships.

Note: It is strongly recommended that children take ALL four classes, as it is designed to progressively increment the level.

Four Classes: 11/16, 11/30, 12/7, and 12/14 on Wednesdays: 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
