MakerToolset Workshop 2017 Winter #1 (Japanese)
Please note that this workshop will be held in Japanese, with all primary instruction in Japanese. The instructors are bilingual and can help English speakers if needed but students should be comfortable using Japanese and receiving instruction in Japanese.
DAY 1 – Electronic Arcade Game Design
Kids will design and create an Electronic Arcade Game as well as put together their own robot and make the robot move as they want it to by learning some simple coding.
Using simple materials like cardboard, tape and easy snap together electronics by littleBits, students will design and prototype an Electronic Arcade Game.
DAY 2 – Robotics and Coding
mBot is a tool for kids to enjoy the hands-on experience about programming, electronics, and robotics. Working with mBlock inspired by Scratch 2.0, controlled wirelessly, this Robot provides infinite possibilities for kids to learn the fun side of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
Signup details: Ages: 9-18 Dec. 26th and 28th, 2016 1:00 - 4:00pm (Doors open 12:40pm) SunLife Nerima For Day 2, please bring a laptop to do the coding (details after registration)
Sign-up cost: ¥8,000 We will provide enough robots for everyone to experience the mBot.
By the end of the workshop students will have built a robot, and be introduced to mechanics and coding needed to program and move a fascinating toy. Using games, or simple activities, this workshop will engage kids and robots together in the room.
Students will learn problem-solving, teamwork, and electronic knowledge used every day. This will empower students to create their new own solutions by strengthening their electronic and coding skills.
