Robotics

The 21st century social and working environment requires young people to be active, flexible, creative and be able to work in a team, as well as be bring innovative solutions to today’s challenges.

ROBOT-ed empowers these new skills and competencies through a tried and tested pedagogical model devised by Lego Education, in which participants develop their talents, communication skills, entrepreneurship, and their curiosity to discover and learn.

Some of the objectives that we work on are:

  • To approach tasks using scientific thinking (assumptions, evidence and conclusions)
  • To build and understand simple and powered machines as well as physical concepts such as gears, shafts, pulleys, levers…
  • To build and program robots at different levels of difficulty whilst developing pupils’ knowledge of sensors and motors.
  • To encourage divergent and creative thinking to find alternative solutions to challenges proposed.
  • To use input and output devices, programming through sequential instructions and thereby creating  cause – effect relationships.
  • To learn through trial and error and developing manual dexterity..

Chess

Strategic games help students’ intellectual growth and build autonomous decision-making skills. Almost all strategy games require internal decision tree style thinking, and typically very high situational awareness – a skill that will be important both during school life and beyond.

Chess is a challenging, intellectual game that is both fun and rewarding. Chess teaches children the importance of strategic thinking, decision making, analysis, memory and concentration. It’s a fascinating game that is easy to learn but takes a lifetime to master.

Once learned though, chess can be enjoyed by all ages and played with family, friends and even online. Our experienced teachers helps pupils enjoy this ancient game and appreciate the mental stimulation it offers.

Creative Workshop

In the Creative Workshop, children learn how to create things and transform their desires and emotions into molded objects.

We not only help our pupils to find ways to express themselves artistically but also teach them different techniques that they can use to develop their project work.

We work with their ideas and we teach them different ways to solve the challenges they encounter. They learn about colours, materials, collage techniques, ceramics and textiles. We also make natural dyes …, always nurturing, encouraging and improving their skills so that they fully enjoy the wonderful process of creation.
