STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths)
What is a STEM program?
STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. This campaign also addresses the inadequate number of teachers skilled to educate in these subjects.
What is Robotics in schools?
Robotics is a simpler to understand and more tangible introduction to programming. Teaching robotics in schools gives students the opportunity to address the growing demand of teaching STEM subjects while learning how science, engineering, math, and technology work together and interact. Robotics is a branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science. It deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. As robotics and computers become increasingly prevalent in students' lives, understanding programming and programming concepts is becoming very important for students' success. Robots are a fun, easy, and effective way to learn about computer programming. Programming a robot has tangible, observable effects.
With a growing economy that has a higher demand for STEM fields, it’s important that the next generation learns how they can make a difference in their world. That's why at
The Swing Academy robotics club we offers after-school robot classes where children with different experience can learn building robots, to learn how to make programmable robots, robot coding and robotic engineering.
We teach basic scientific principles and complex subjects in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM), Machinery and Software Engineering through the use of games. The essence of the method is based on theoretical studies, research and statistics tests.
From robotics programming to robot building, our professional trainers engage students to learn different aspects of robotics.
They always seek to offer every child the opportunity and confidence to enter a challenging society by providing an encouraging, hands-on environment which will develop the necessary skill set.
Build problem-solving skills whilst providing an opportunity for creative expression and fostering an appreciation of how things work.
Develop critical thinking skills and spatial intelligence through design thinking processes.
Explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) concepts by utilising multiple learning modalities to engage visual, kin-aesthetic and auditory learning styles. Different kids learn in different ways!
Develop social and emotional skills such as patience, teamwork and communication in the process of completing a project in a noncompetitive environment setting with like-minded children.
Improve fine-motor skills as children manipulate small components and objects in a playful and imaginative setting.
The Benefits of Robotics
Not only do our robotics programs help to establish science, technology, engineering, and math concepts, they also work to build on students’ team-building skills as they work to complete fun challenges. These collaborative skills are essential for student success, no matter what subject they choose to pursue in the future.
Many other advantages include:
Improved creative thinking skills
Improved social skills
Improved problem-solving skills
Improved computer programming skills
