Spike Prime Summer Programs
Skill Building Weeks:
On skill building weeks, students will learn about the many motors and sensors which are used in the Spike Prime kit, as well as building mechanics, and Scratch coding. Students will mainly work at their own pace with instructors so that they are able to work on skills at their own pace. Students will work with Scratch and their robots to learn the fundamental concepts of robotics, and how to apply those concepts to different scenarios.
The two different competitions that are running are the WRO 2021 Primary category, and WRO Sumo. During the competition classes, students will be given a set of guidelines, and based on those guidelines, build a robot. They will test and redesign as well as code their robots in order to perform the best during the competitions. At the end of each week, a competition will be held within the class where students will see how well their robots perform, as well as reflect on what they would like to improve.
