Robotics at the Imaginarium of South Texas... 

 

 

The Imaginarium of South Texas provides enginnering programs to all the children of our community through Robotics camps, workshops and outreaches. Our goal is to get children excited about science and technology through a fun and innovative approach: Robotics. The objective of these programs is to engage children (ages 6-14) in Robotics and encourage them to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers. When participating, children are encouraged to brainstorm in order to find creative solutions to problems and then develop them through a process of selecting, building, testing, and evaluating. These skills include problem-solving, collaborating with peers, and strengthening math, science, engineering, and logic skills to create innovative ideas.

Robotics Academy

Ages: 8+

Is it a weekly three hour-class that we offer all throughout the year in three different levels beginners, intermediate & advanced. Our workshop enables students to build and program real-life robotic solutions by using the NXT Mindstorm Robotics Kits. 

 

  • Beginners: learn about basic programming with motors, they accomplish or work on a different project every class.
     

  • Advanced: focus on sensors and bigger projects that require more building and programming skills.

WeDo Robotics

Ages: 5+

Is it a weekly three hour-class that we offer all throughout the year in two different levels beginners & advancedThis workshop enables students to build and program robotic solutions at a smaller scale by using the WeDo Lego Robotics Kits.
 
  • Beginners: learn about basic programming with motors, they accomplish or work on a different project every class.
  • Advanced: focus on sensors and bigger projects that require more building and programming skills.

RoboTech Challenge

Ages: 8+

The RoboTech Challenge is a two week summer camp/ robotics competition in which kids will have to learn, develop and design a robot to complete this year’s challenge: Senior Solutions.
In this camp children learn:
  • Basic programming (based on math, and strategy)
  • The different function of gears, motors and sensors [touch, ultrasonic, sound, light]
  • How to work with others by being part of a team. 
​Our Robotics Competition consists of three parts:Robot Challenge, Project and Presentation. The children will work on these three components and present them the last day of camp. 
 
Benifits of Robotics:

According a recent study at Brandeis University, Kids who participate in Robotics programs are:

  • 50 percent more likely to attend college

  • Twice as likely to major in science or engineering

  • Three times as likely to major specifically in engineering

  • Young women who are introduced to robotics at an early age, are four times more likely to pursue a degree in engineering or science

Our Mission: 

Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
