How do I become a mechanical prodigy

Holiday camp in Leimen: programming with Robo Wunderkind is child's play

description

In this holiday camp, kids interested in technology can use the Robo Wunderkind kit to build simple robots and program them themselves.

The children do not need any previous knowledge. Even the youngest (from 6 years) quickly immerse themselves in the fascinating world of robotics and manage to solve exciting tasks together with their robot within a short time.

Before we start tinkering and programming, let's first discuss a few basic questions: Who actually created the robots and what for? What different robots are there? How do robots work? What is electricity and why do robots need it?

Then we look at the different components and modules together. The Robo Wunderkind kit contains various electrical and mechanical parts. There are also several motors and different sensors, such as the distance sensor, the light sensor and the motion detector. We will program with the help of the two programs "Robo Live" and "Robo Code".

We start programming with “Robo Live”. Here the kids learn to control the robot, make it glow in different colors and make funny noises.

In the course of the holiday camp, things get a little trickier with “Robo Code”. Because now the different sensors come into play one after the other. We will also find out what a programming loop is and how the robot only executes certain programming sections when a predetermined condition is met.

 

Further information on the process:

In each research period, a model is built and programmed in teams of two. Building and programming takes place in this camp without instructions. For most tasks there is no such thing as “right” or “wrong”. The children can and should solve the respective tasks in very different ways and will notice that there is usually more than one way to the goal.

 

The Robo Wunderkind software has been developed for primary school children without programming knowledge. It is structured intuitively so that even the youngest can gather their first programming experience here.

As a little "icing on the cake", the Robo Wunderkind kit also includes interfaces to LEGO®, so that the robots can be embellished and rebuilt with LEGO® bricks.

 

Research and exercise times alternate in our holiday camps: During the breaks, we usually follow up with the children
outside, so they can work out in the fresh air before doing any further research.
