Class Experience

Robotics is a growing field in our world that is constantly changing and advancing in technology. 

In this course, you will get to experience first hand what it is like to be a Robotics Engineer. You will have the opportunity to build and program your own robot through various obstacles and challenges presented throughout the class.  

For this course, students will be programming and building the mBot from MakeBlock. Students will be using it to learn to program robots, create their projects, and share their creations. 

Students will learn that being a Robotics Engineer starts with understanding the parts of a robot and continues into building and programming several simple tasks.  

With the guide of an instructor, students will learn that they too can be a part of the Robotics Engineer process, if they are willing to just try. 
Bright & Smart was founded in 2005. We have been teaching and developing our programs for the past 15 years. We create our programs with students learning experience in mind; we want them to learn to love STEM and to develop their higher cognitive skills and natural abilities, we help them to see themselves as creators of technology.  
Students will be allowed to continue to build and program their robots in between meetings. Prior to every class, students can present their projects and the improvements they made in the process.  
Students must have the mBot from MakeBlock (~$60) at home. You can purchase it using the link below:
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No assessment will be administered. This class is for students to challenge themselves to think outside the box and place themselves in the minds of engineers. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students must have the mBot* from MakeBlock (price range: $59-$79) at home to participate. 

*mBot is a STEAM education robot for beginners, that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun. With just a screwdriver, the step by step instructions, and a study schedule, children can build a robot from scratch and experience the joys of hands-on creation. As they go, they will learn about a variety of robotic machinery and electronic parts, get to grips with the fundamentals of block-based programming, and develop their logical thinking and design skills.
