Robotics Engineering-Autonomous Vehicles*Updated (6weeks)
A robotics engineer is responsible for designing, creating, and programming robots. Robotic
systems can perform duties that humans are either unable or prefer not to complete. They help
make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient, particularly in the manufacturing industry.
The specialist and managers will reinforce their robotic concepts from the Autonomous Vehicles
course. They will work with the sensor and advanced programming to face a variety of challenge
mixing mechanical design and programming design to solve problems. The LEGO® Mindstorms
EV3TRIBOT Model materials and the EV3 Classroom (Scratch like) GUI software are also used
in this course. The children will face different challenges having fun utilizing the STEM
education model.
Pick up outside Rm 121 at by basketball court after class.

BrainSTEM Learning: Spring -Specialists/Managers-Aeronautical Aerospace Engineering
(6 weeks)

(Grades 2-7: co-ed, Students: 5 min.- 12 Max. Enrolment)
Dates: Wednesdays, Class: 3-4:30, RM 121, May 15, 22, 29, June 5, 12, 19
Cost: $300+ 5% GST or $50 +5% GST/1.5 hr for 6 sessions

AeroSpace Engineering: Astronautical
Aerospace engineering involves the design and construction of planes and space shuttles.
Aeronautical engineering covers crafts that stay inside the Earth’s atmosphere (such as
commercial planes) while astronautical engineering covers craft that leave the Earth’s
atmosphere (theory and practice of navigation beyond Earth’s atmosphere, such as space
shuttles).

In this program the specialist and managers will learn about the fundamentals of astronautical
industry discovering about aerodynamics; gravity; velocity; acceleration; forces to lift, drag and
thrust objects; aerodynamics like Bernoulli principle; and space environment characteristics.
They will use math to improve their results; will discover about the importance of the materials
in this engineering branch; and use his or her creativity and curiosity to design, build and test
their own prototypes at the same time they have fun.
Pick up outside Rm 121 at by basketball court after class.
