ASTRONOMY AND ROBOTICS

 ROBOTICS

“... you just can't differentiate between a robot and the very best of humans.” 
― Isaac Asimov, I, Robot
Robotics helps address the growing demand for teaching science, technology, engineering and maths in schools. As well as exemplifying technology directly by programming the robot, students also learn about science, engineering and maths and get an understanding of how these subjects link together.
The Robotics Club aims to fully engage and challenge our aspiring engineers, computer programmers and scientists from Classes 4 and 5. 
 The first session of the class began with a bang, which included the basic introduction of robotics and its applications in our daily lives. The learners were updated with the arrangement of the programme by the mentors from Scrap Biotics Laboratories. 
 The second week, was full of eagerness and zest as the children were provided with a tool kit. Each component of the kit and its use was explained to them. The learners also tried making some basic connections. 
 The third week, witnessed the learners learning to make simple, series and parallel circuits. One of the students tried creating a simple vacuum cleaner also. It is overall proving to be a great learning experience for the students creating a passion for robotics and engineering.
 
ASTRONOMY
“I am just learning to notice the different colours of the stars, and already begin to have a new enjoyment."
— Maria Mitchell, Astronomer
 
The students of class IV had their astronomy club on 26th April 2016 in which they learnt how the rockets are made and launched.
They were given material to make their own rockets. The resource people demonstrated how to assemble the rockets. Our children followed instructions diligently and created the rockets. Then they were given material to launch their self- made rockets. The activity was thoroughly enjoyed. The children went home happy with their own rockets and launchers.
