Robotics

UCMAS is an Organisation Specializing in STEM education, aiming to provide the latest in STEM education. Coaching Guru team comprises of trained instructors & educators with a mix of experience of teaching and background education of engineering.

We provide an innovative and education-based program designed to bring the concepts of science, technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) to life using building bricks. This is an ideal pathway for introducing younger students to everyday technology and to enable them to understand how the things around them actually work.

The unique combination of building robots with the familiar LEGO bricks, using easy-to-use coding software and engaging curriculum relevant STEM challenges makes our course fun and relevant for children.

Why Should Children Learn Robotics and Coding ?

Robotics and coding are part of what is called computational thinking, and computational thinking is a fundamental set of skills all students need to learn if they want to be prepared for the future real-world challenges they will encounter. This approach to problem solving can help students in all STEM subjects and beyond.

Using computational thinking to encourage students to explore, build, code, test and refine solutions to engaging STEM challenges, they are better prepared for the real-world challenges awaiting them.

Learning Targets

  • Develop hand eye coordination, motor and perception kills.
  • Develop an appreciation for how things work.
  • Build self-confidence and problem solving skills.
  • Trigger children’s lively imaginations and creativity.
  • Provide a safe, enriching place to create and play.

Activities and Benefits

  • Kids construct a new model each week based on exciting real-world themes – from a construction site to an amusement part, airport etc.
  • The fully functional real worl model enables children to discover and understand how they work.
  • Kids will learn about everything from gears, pulleys wheels an axles, friction etc by seeing them in action.
  • It takes learning out of the pages of the textbook and into an imaginative, 3-dimentional, hands-on fun, learning experience!

Towards the end of the course we shall introduce problem-solving challenges featuring real-life settings with needs that cannot be solved in just one way. The problem-solving challenges are realistic, and children will be able to test and integrate more than just one principle at a time.
