october 2020 - half term coding & robotics camps

Starting:  18 October 2020
PROGRAM 1 - CODER Z Adventures for 7 - 10 Year Olds
Sunday to Thursday:  9:30am to 12pm
Fees:  AED 500
What is CODER Z?

CoderZ is a powerful, award-winning online platform through which students learn valuable STEM skills such as codingrobotics, and physical computing. CoderZ is highly flexible and designed for use in the classroom or through a wide range of remote learning environments.  

Students have the opportunity to learn online with engaging, gamified solutions, challenges and competitions. Working at their own pace, students can easily program real and virtual robots from anywhere in the world. CoderZ enables them to acquire computational thinking, problem solving skills and learn coding as a life skill. CoderZ is designed for students with different background levels of robotics: From Blockly to Java.


Course Outline:

  • Step by step instructions into the CoderZ Adventures through basic missions
  • Brush up basic mathematical skills of addition, subtraction, and division through the mission set of Frozen Island
  • Using the Explore Mode feature, students will learn to measure distance and practice wait blocks and repeat loops.
  • In the set ‘Let’s practice basic geometry,’ students will practice some geometrical concepts about angles and parallel lines while working on their repeat loops.
  • The students will practice more geometry, i.e., the radius of a circle through the set ‘The Candy Town.’ 
  • The next set of ‘Sketch it!’ will put the creativity of the students to test.  Using all the topics learned up to this adventure of driving distance, angles, radii, etc., the students will work on their art skills.
  • Students will plan the optimal route to complete the missions as quickly and efficiently as possible within a given time limit in the last adventure.
PROGRAM 2 - CYBER ROBOTICS 101 for 11 - 14 Year Olds
Sunday to Thursday:  1pm to 4pm
Fees:  AED 600
Cyber Robotics 101 is a flexible coding program that introduces students to the core concepts of code development and robotics.
In this course, students will learn engineering concepts like mechanics, navigation, sensors, and more while being introduced to computer science fundamentals like commands, variables, conditional logic, loops, smart blocks/functions, and more.
 Course Outline:
  • Overview of STEM and first steps in the CoderZ learning environment.
  • Learn about drive systems and how to navigate your robot using computer code.
  • Use Steering and Smart Blocks to carry out complex maneuvers.
  • Learn how to use the Robot’s touch sensor for autonomous navigation using basic coding blocks.
  • Learn how to code more efficiently with the Repeat loop.
  • Learn how to make accurate turns using data from the Gyroscopic sensor.
  • Learn how to reset the data from the Gyroscopic sensor.
  • Design, then make the dominoes fall in sequence.
  • Apply all you’ve learned so far, and take on an advanced challenge that puts your skills to the test.
  • Learn how to avoid obstacles by sensing them from afar using the Ultrasonic sensor.
  • The robot can detect colors on the floor and use them to make better decisions.
  • More advanced challenges that put students’ skills to the test.
  • Using Motor blocks and the robot’s arm to grab and move objects.
  • Coding the robot to make decisions.
  • More advanced challenges that put students’ skills to the test.

COVID-19 Programs

Due to the continuing threat of COVID-19 both programs will be conducted online using video conferencing tools.   Upon registration and payment,  you will receive the access details for the program.  Each child will require access to a laptop / desktop computer and be able to communicate with the teachers using video.
Please note that there are a limited number of spaces for each class and acceptance onto the program will be on a first come, first served basis.
Payment:  Payment can be made by credit card only and all prices are inclusive of 5% VAT.
