Avishkaar Learning Programs(ALPs)
Avishkaar Learning Programs are our In-School Robotics Programs for students with a hands-on and fun-driven learning approach. Developed by academicians and seasoned Educators, our Robotronic's Program allows children to use their imagination and discover an exciting and important connection with real world applications, an experience that is vital for success in the 21st century. Our Robotics Programs can be integrated within the school curriculum and covers lesson plans with specific learning outcomes, assessments and teacher training for smooth execution and implementation of the program.
Avishkaar Junior Program
Grades: IV and V
Instructional Hours: 10- 40 hours
Kit Used: Robotronics LITE E Series
The curriculum is mapped to the class concepts and comprises of well laid out lesson plans with in-built assessment and feedback mechanism.
What will students learn?
Our Junior School program teaches and encourages a wide variety of 21st-century skills crucial at this age such as manual dexterity, confidence, analytical abilities, communication and team work.
What will students make?
Students get exposure to mechanical designing and work on Robotronics LITE kit to build Robots. They also get a chance to take part in International Competition!
INTRODUCTION TO ENGINEERING DESIGN PROCESS WITH ROBOTRONICS LITE
The Junior Avishkaar program is based on Robotronics LITE - the most popular assembly kit for this age group. Here, students to be exposed to the Engineering Design Process, which means to design, build, test and improve. Students design and build basic machines, investigate models, learn about simple and compound machines, mechanisms and structures. They learn to power and control mechanisms that they have built themselves.
MECHANICAL DESIGNING AND CONCEPTS COVERED WITH ROBOTRONICS LITE
Avishkaar Junior program introduces the application of various Science concepts like Simple and Complex Machines, Pulleys, Levers, Wedges, gear systems etc. The program (that starts with some basic designs) progressively builds up the complexity of Robots to include the concepts of Motion, Types of Motion, Momentum and Centre of Gravity in Grade V. By end of the second year of the program, the children are adept at all aspects of mechanical designing and have a good handle on different kind of mechanisms (be it pull, push, slide, sweep, pick/drop etc). All this is explored with the popular Robotronics LITE.
DEVELOPMENT OF CRUCIAL LIFE SKILLS THROUGH ROBOTRONICS LITE
The goal of the program is to develop key life skills like creativity, imagination, concentration and problem solving amongst the children. Children learn about various Science concepts while designing Robots using the LITE kit. It also stretches their thinking by coming up with solutions to interesting problems that we expose them to.
INTERNATIONAL ROBOTRONICS CHALLENGE - IRC LEAGUE
Kids get to experience the excitement that comes with building and competing with their robots through our popular International Robotronics Challenge – IRC League. Guided by mentors and their own imaginations, students solve real-world world challenges, develop crucial life skills, and learn to make positive contributions to society.
