It's all about the character

Students will design a character built only from their imaginations. They will first draw their character, creating its physical image and then design its personality (flaws, strengths and oddities). Once the characters are created students will write a story around them. They will experiment with different ways of writing to discover what suits their character best. Students will have the opportunities to make their characters face challenges and tensions in worlds that only they can imagine. Students need to be prepared to challenge themselves in ways beyond the imagination.

CSI

Students will be introduced to the process of solving a crime. Groups are given a brief “job description” for a variety of C.S.I. roles (Lead Investigator, Detective, Analyst etc.). The group will allocate each member a roll. Each group will carry out their role in responding to a crime. Students will record data, take crime scene photographs, collect evidence and collect witness statements etc.

Junior Robotics

What is a robot?

You can choose just about any definition that suits you, but we like to define a robot simply as this: A device that performs work. Work is the exertion of energy.

Did you realise you have been using robots your entire life and probably never even thought about it? A vending machine is a robot. A dishwasher is a robot. A washing machine is a robot. The automatic checkout lane at the grocery store is a robot.

Robots are all around us and need not be feared. This leaves the definition of a robot open to anything that is non-human or non-animal that moves or has moving parts.

We are not judging whether the robot performs useful work. The usefulness is best judged by the robot’s creator and its fans.

Beginner Robotics is the first step in moving from toy lego into a more advanced version. We focus on the development of moving parts such as pulley systems, pistons, levers and cogs. Students have the opportunity to then program these systems using software, giving them their first taste of a block style programming system.

Robotics gives students an experience and a reason to develop their basic problem-solving skills which can never be underestimated.
