Robotics Course for Adolescents (12-15 years)
From the factory to the operating room - robots are already doing so many tasks for us today. In this course, you will learn how to programme robots. We discuss real problems from the everyday life of the future. How do you programme a robot with a distance sensor to automatically avoid obstacles, like a self-driving car? How do you use infrared communication to prevent robots from crashing into each other in confined spaces, as it risks happening in a drone swarm?
Get ready for a lot of tricky challenges. Can you solve them all?
This course is challenging and requires programming knowledge. First, visit our Basics Programming Course, to learn programming. If you already have programming experience, you can start the robotics course as soon as you have completed a short assessment. Register for the assessment with the secretariat by calling: 044 520 81 19 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Robotik Kurse
What you will learn with us
- Programming: you can use variables, conditional instructions, and functions to read data from sensors and write programmes that respond sensibly to unexpected inputs.
- Hardware: you know how a computer works and can explain in particular the role of the processor, memory, and operating system in the computer system.
- Algorithms: you can compare and evaluate different algorithms to solve the same problem (e.g. linear and binary search, sorting method).
We carefully select our CodesSchool coaches according to strict criteria. Many years of programming experience is a must! Many of our coaches have a background in engineering at ETH Zurich and extensive teaching experience. The following coaches teach the robotics courses with great enthusiasm and commitment:
|Jodok Vieli, BSc Computer Science, ETH Zurich
Jodok has programming experience at Disney Research, among others. He truly believes that everyone should have basic knowledge of programming. Even those who are only familiar with the basic concepts see the world in a different way.
Jodok teaches Robotics for 12 to 15-year-olds.
|Tobias Geisler, BSc Electrical Engineering, ETH Zurich |
From the calculator in school to the professional development of sophisticated web apps. Tobias has already explored the vast world of programming from various angles. While he himself never ceases to learn, he passes on this experience with a lot of passion in the programming lessons.
Tobias teaches Robotics for 12 - to 15-years-olds.
