Frequently Asked Questions

Each student is different. We customize the curriculum for each student and present them with projects that keep them challenged as well as giving the students many learning opportunities.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Isn't Robotics really very complex? How can you teach Robotics to a school kid?

We have robotics kits for all ages and have set a curriculum for young children that is both easy to understand and fun for the kids. For many children, it's fascinating to experiment with robots and try out different things - what they don't realize is that while they are playing, they are learning the basics of programming, STEM subjects, and so much more by fiddling and trying out different things with the robots.

2. What's the right age to start learning Robotics?

There is no age limits on starting with Robotics. We have students from KG (Age 5) in our Lego Batches. If you are doubtful if your kiddo is ready for this, contact us and setup an assessment session where we will help you decide.

3. When does the program start?

You can join any week in our sessions as we will present every student with customized curriculum meeting their needs. We have found that a general curriculum doesn't fit everyone and different students have different needs - some likes building, some like programming, some likes competing with others and some likes to work with challenging problems.

4. How can I be sure that this is the right program for my kid?

Bring your kid for a no-obligation trial session (2 Hrs). Email/Call us for scheduling the free trial session.

5. Why should a school student learn Robotics?

There is a growing recognition that Computational Thinking Practices are critical for all students to learn. They form the cornerstone of the language of innovation, and will drive all future STEM discoveries. They are a new set of "basic skills" that all students need to know.

6. Is this the same my kid learned in his summer camp?

Short answer is NO. Robotics is not something your child can learn at a normal summer camp. It should be learned in a systematic fashion. There are good educational institutions teaching it, but unfortunately the kids will not be able to master it unless they join a regular program.

7. How is RobotiX Institute different from other places offering Robotics?

Instructors at RobotiX Institute are Carnegie Mellon certified teachers with decades of Industry experience. We have a passion for technology and we encourage our students to free thinking and nurture them as future inventors. We tailor the curriculum for each student to meet their requirements. We have courses to meet every student's need, whether they are just beginners or advanced or they just want to learn programming - we have you covered.

8. What's LEGO Robotics?

LEGO MINDSTORMS educational robotic systems provide a tailor-made solution of hardware, software and educational resources. Students learn to design, program and control fully-functional models and robots that carry out life-like automated tasks.

9. How is STEM involved with Robotics ?

Robots are the best way to make youngsters engaged, at the same time motivated to learn. It's the best tool which combines all STEM components - Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. In our curriculum (Curriculum developed by ROBOMATTER, world leader in Robotics curriculum), students will learn to Design, Code and they will learn Concepts of Automation and Artificial Intelligence through structure Robotics education. Students will also learn to do problem solving, design and implementation, lateral thinking, most essentially improve their team building skills.

Science - Learn Science while having fun.

Technology - Discover how things work

Engineering - Engage in Engineering problems

Mathematics - Do Math while having fun

10. My child is already studying well in school. What is the benefit of this program?

The advantages of LEGO robots in the educational environment include:

  • Backed by LEGO brand (which is associated with fun)

  • Allows quick prototyping (if you don't like what you've built, pull it apart and start over)

  • Can be programmed with many languages; LEGO NXTG programming language, LabVIEW, ROBOTC, JAVA.

11. Is it just another academic program?

Short answer is NO. For Long answer, check out our how our typical class look like (below).

12. What would be a typical class look like?

The students will learn basic concepts and will be doing projects daily. For example, one of the activities students will be doing during the course is to program a robot to drive fixed distances in set patterns. Even these simple programming constructs require precise, thoughtful communication between student and robot - how far should the robot move? How far should it turn? As the challenges become more complex, students learn to break the large problems down into simpler ones, and construct solutions with care, one step at a time.
Sensors add the element of data and make key information about the robot's environment available; numeric abstractions become a reality - 35 centimeters to the nearest wall, turn 90 degrees - enable the student to make smart decisions about the robot's behavior. These practices - precise logical thinking, using data to make decisions, analyzing problems, and building solutions in teams - are critical in all forms of problem solving, not just robotic ones. Robotics activities are concrete, contextualized, and provide immediate feedback - important factors in satisfying a student's desire for success and creating the motivation to continue learning. Students also learn about the robotics technologies themselves, which impact all modern industries, from agriculture to healthcare, banking, manufacturing, transportation, energy, and security. The pervasiveness of robotics technologies, from airplane autopilots, to bank machines, to smartphones, to self-driving cars helps students to be "engaged learners" as they believe that the content that they are studying is important or will be valuable to them.
