Children design, program, and test robots on special playing fields to see how well they work. It is a process very similar to the one applied by cutting-edge companies when they developing new technology. Children work in teams of two – they are encouraged to try different strategies when designing and programming the robots. Through this approach they develop:
- Team work and communication skills.
- Problem solving and engineering skills.
- An understanding of the fact that there is not one “correct” answer to a practical problem, but a number of possible solutions.
Why do bicycles have gears? What makes a pendulum swing? How do pulleys make heavy loads lighter? Build some machines of your own and discover what makes them work – from simple machine, car, and Morse communicators to real rockets! Kids work in teams of two engineers to assemble, test and race motorized cars. Each car includes: an electromagnetic motor, battery power pack, circuits, gears, eye screws, wheels and more! Once assembled, each child gets to personalize their car with authentic race car stickers.
This program is based on what kids want to do – have fun, be competitive, interact socially, and feel good and look good without hard work! So what exactly is Interactive Fitness? It may include the Wii Station where kids can play conventional Xbox programs… only here the hand controller is modified so that the players must move their bodies in order to move the characters on screen, incorporating isometrics into popular video games.
