A revolutionary educational program that teaches children the fundamentals of programming and robotics, using an intuitive and straightforward physical coding language. AlgoPlay introduces the participants to the world of robotics through a hands-on and fun educational experience.
Overview of AlgoPlay Curriculum:
Young Engineers believes in teaching through the Spiral Learning Technique. In this method, each enrichment program builds on the previous program’s curriculum. In addition, we always encourage newcomers and reteach lessons to make sure all students are up to speed.
With the tangible coding language of Algobrix®, students begin by constructing a building block model, then create various lines of code using function & Parameter blocks. Finally, by pressing the Play block, the robot will perform the coding sequence.
By matching function and parameter blocks together, the child creates a command for the robot. For example, moving it forward or turning on a red light. By putting the blocks together one after the other, it creates a code that the model will execute.
In each lesson, the student will perform high level programming tasks such as Algorithm planning, Functions & Parameters, Conditioning, Loops, Multithreading, Debugging, Race Condition, sensor applications and more.
AlgoPlay equips students with the professional skills necessary for understanding the logic behind almost any coding language that exists today.
