Robotic for Children
The STEAM PROJECT OF THE GOETHE-INSTITUT
The Goethe-Institut Namibia in cooperation with MindsInAction presents a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) Programme that aims to offer Namibian learners a new approach to knowledge and unveil a path to the application of 21st century skills.
@ Goethe-Institut Namibia
Science and mathematics concepts combined with technology, arts, and engineering principles are revealed through the process of coding, building and programming Dash and Lego robots to perform specified tasks, and to solve well defined problems. Participants are presented with a chance to think of and build their own prototypes after exploring basic electronics, sensors, motors and coding blocks. They learn by doing, applying what they learn at school to real situations to cement the fundamentals of technology and engineering, and the principles of programming through fun activities.
Participants will learn skills including:
- Problem identification and problem solving
- To think critically and independently
- How to develop a prototype solution
- How to the mathematics and science concepts they learned at school to real life situations.
- Free expression and raise confidence in one’s abilities.
- To collaborate with others and practice leadership
Each term we offer a level 1 and Level 2 course, while start of level 2 and 3 courses depend on the number of registrations.
Learners register with a once-off payment of 1600 NAD, for 8 weeks (8 Saturdays), from 10h00 – 12h00 at the Goethe-Institut, 1 -5 Fidel Castro Street, Windhoek.
