Blueinno STEM Program (Age 6-8)
More than Coding & Robotics, Designed to inspire Kids who are curious about Technology!
Instructor to Student Ratio: 1:5
Hands-on, Project-based learning
STEM is more than Coding & Robotics
Coding is just a tool, most important of all is how to use the right tools to solve problems. The best STEM education provides an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Technology is always changing. We believe teaching kids how to think and use creativity and technology to solve problems is a life skill.
What we teach
In this course, we teach children to build various projects related to coding, electronics, and robotics to build up their technical knowledge. It is about exploring and solving real-life problems with the knowledge children have developed.
This is a 2-year program (total 6 terms) for students to become:
1) problem solvers - able to define and solve problems by technology
2) innovators - creatively use science, mathematics, and technology concepts by applying design thinking method
If your kids always have questions about science & technology, but you do not know how to answer them.
This is the right course for your kids.
Problem 1: Separate subjects taught in different lessons. Students cannot apply integrated knowledge to real life applications
Problem 2: Knowledge Based Learning, Students do not have time to create and problem solve.
How do we teach STEM?
- Many parents think that STEM is coding, but coding is only a tool to solve problems. STEM is an approach to learning and development that integrates the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
- STEAM (STEM with ART) Education at a young age can help students get exposure to hands-on learning that enhances children’s creativity and problem-solving skills.
Our Teaching Method: 這是我們的教學方法:
- We first teach the basic knowledge, and then inspire students to integrate knowledge and use their creativity to make their own solutions.
3 terms each year: FALL (SEPT - DEC), WINTER (JAN - MAR), SPRING (APR-JUN)
10-14 weekly classes per term
each class is 1 hour 15 mins long
- The curriculum can last for 2 years (6 terms).
Students will be invited to join our demo day and present their projects in December, and June each year.
Sample Class Theme:
In each lesson, we will set a theme, and base on the theme, we will teach a few concepts of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. At the end of the course, students are asked to build a device/applications that solve real-life problems.
We will teach children to build various projects related to coding, electronics, and robotics to build up their interest in technology. We will build different STEAM related projects to let children visualize how technology can help to solve real-life problems.
Coding with ScratchJr
Students will program their own interactive stories with ScratchJr to learn basic computer concepts, such as sequencing, event, loop, etc. Children can create their own interactive collages, animated stories, and games.
Introduction to MIT Scratch
Students will use Scratch, a block-based programming tool developed by MIT to learn basic computer programming concepts such as loops, and if-then logic by building different projects with Makey Makey.
Coding: ScratchJr, Kodable, Edison Programmable Robot
Advanced Coding: MIT Scratch
Electronics: LED Circuit Kits
Robotics: Blueinno Robot Kits
Bring your fully charged iPad (We have spare iPads upon request)
Each lesson, we will build and learn one STEAM related concepts. Kids will bring home the creations they built during class.
- Projects are not limited to
LED Art Work
