All our classes are instructor-led. Gr. 4- 8 Robotics Projects students have been utilizing Robot Virtual World for projects since 2015. This allows students to build the fundamental robotics programming skill before investing hundreds of dollars on a single physical robot. In addition, we have found that students have made faster progress at the earlier stages.
It’s curriculum is supported by U of Pittsburgh, and Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Academy. CMU Robotics Academy's CS-STEM Network utilizes the "Robot Virtual World" as major learning tool.It’s goal aligns with SR’s – to develop and strengthen students’ requisite skills in the field of Computer Science and Robotics to compete in the AI world.
Better yet, Storming Robots do not just use cookie-cutter programs. We further enhanced their curriculum to advance students with high potential.
This essential characteristics has always been a part of the learning process in our Robotics Project Track programs. Through our online programs, we have been able to further strengthen and obtain stronger result.
Starting from Spring of 2020, Storming Robots launched "The Most Developed Portfolio Recognition" to further encourage this important discipline which has been commonly neglected. Students created their portfolio - a multi-faceted way for them to organize, reflect , and substantiate on the knowledge gained throughout the term, and accomplishment.
Using the Robot Virtual World with Mindstorms allows them to establish the fundamental skill in getting virtual robot to work through various project and learning to program in text-based C-like programming language. After that, they can migrate to another more sophisticated physical platform. If students would choose to stay with LEGO Mindstorms, they can certaintly do that.
Mindstorms costs almost 3x, but is far less expandable than Makeblock platform.
Better yet, once they get used to Arduino-C, it will lend itself nicely to a far more diversed platforms and sophisticated projects.
For those whith Algorithms in C/C++ - level III experience,they can move onto Webots Simulation platform. Webots is designed for a professional use and is widely used in industry, education and research. Storming Robots has run multiple workshops, and participated in the Simulation platform World competition starting the Fall of 2020.
