World Robot Olympiad (WRO) Egypt, 2017 preparation Tracks
Tracks for New Students and Tracks for our students who joined WRO with us Last year.
Age: Elementary, Middle School, High School and University
Place: Nile University, Sheick Zayed.
By the end of this track students will learn:
How to develop and construct robotic devices for a variety of commercial, manufacturing and security purposes. Learn more about both programs as well as career prospects.
Students enrolled in a robotics engineering track build knowledge on computer science and engineering while also learning about the contexts and environments in which robotics are created. Robotics engineering programs generally require candidates to complete capstone projects wherein they must design and create successful robotic devices. Candidates may also be required to research and write theses.
Robotics engineers should be highly creative, self-motivated individuals with an ability to think outside the box. Their advanced mathematics, applied physical science, and computer science skills should be solid, and they should enjoy collaborating with a team and be adept at communicating with others. Those skills the students enrolled by passing from phase to phase in the robot track.
Robot Track phases:
Works on elementary students, this phase starts from 8years old - 10 years old. In this phase students starts to explore without any kind of stress how different structures work , mechanical pieces , motors, gears, pulleys and controlling systems. Moreover, how to work on teams and solve different challenges while increasing their focus and observation skills.
The number of hours in this phase depends on the age of the applicant upon entry.
8years-10years old students: 6 terms = 24 weeks = 48 hours
Works on upper age elementary students and middle school students (11 years- 15years). In this phase students start to use mathematics and physics in solving different challenges, by the end of this phase students may choose to start integrating different electronic platforms in building their robot. Also they are encouraged to enter the Egyptian Robot Olympiad taking place in September.
The number of hours in this phase depends on the age of the applicant and purpose of learning.
Works on high school students (16 years- 19years). In this phase students start to use advanced mathematics and physics in solving different challenges, by the end of this phase students may choose to start integrating different electronic platforms in building their robot. Also they are encouraged to enter the Egyptian Robot Olympiad taking place in September.
The number of hours in this phase depends on the purpose of learning.
Evaluation & Assessment
Any track is composed of a group of skills that the student has to master within the available time slot. The Essential track is divided into three sub tracks each sub track usually takes 12 hours to cover the skills of the sub track however this rule is sometimes differ from one to another as there are students who might take longer than 12 hours to master a skill or take less than 12 hours.
In general the students will be exposed to and evaluated according to their abilities to master:
Each three students need an EV3 education Kit for the training needs. Also, a computer lab .
550 EGP per student/Month.
We have Different Groups:
1- Groups Starts January after school timing, one day per week from Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 PM
2- Groups Starts in Mid Year Vacation.
3- Groups Starts at 12 February 2017 after school timing, one day per week from Sunday to Thursday from 5:30 to 8:30 PM
