KES Robotics Club General Rules

KES Robotics Club Information
Cost: FREE. Donations of supplies and healthy snacks are appreciated.
Who: Students from 3rd to 5th Grade.
What: KES Robotics Club is a fun-oriented club that interactively teaches kids Engineering and Robotic Design principles. Students will learn how to build, program, play, test and compete with their team’s designed robot.
When: We will typically meet 2 days a week with 2 to 3 hours per day. More meeting(s) may be required to prepare for competition.
Where: Kealakehe Elementary School (subject to change)
Why: The program will build STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) skills that inspire innovation and foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence.
How: A team of 3 or more students will design, build, and program their robot to meet the challenge. Students will learn to collaborate with mentors who will provide guidance as needed.

Meet our robots

Hands-on, minds on! VEX IQ is a programmable, snap-together, robotics system. Watch code come alive on a physical robot and learn key STEM skills that easily transition into the real world.
Sphero SPRK+ is a programmable robot ball designed to inspire creativity and curiosity through coding and play. With SPRK+, children can easily learn programming, complete hands-on STEAM activities, and share their creations with the community. Power up their playtime.

mBot is a STEAM education robot that makes teaching and learning robot programming simple and fun. Children can build a robot from scratch and experience the joys of hands-on creation. As they go, they will learn about a variety of robotic machinery and electronic parts, get to grips with the fundamentals of block-based programming, and develop their logical thinking and design skills.
Dash and Dot are a pair of programmable robots. The idea behind them is to give children 6-12 an educational platform (in the form of a robot) to learn about the world of robotics and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in a playful and easy to understand way.

The KES Robotics Club seeks to provide an environment where students can learn creative problem solving and teamwork using STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) methods centered around developing and programming robots. The intent is to do this in a way that is fun for the students and helps to pave the way for future STEM opportunities.
