We are currently planning on doing an outreach and are looking for more schools interested in participating with us.
Outreach is a robotics program that Hilo Viking Robotics provides for elementary schools in Hilo. It is usually a 10 week after-school program (meeting one or two times a week). The program provides an opportunity for kids to learn the basics of engineering and technology through the application of robots. We use the NXT Lego Mindstorm to teach our program. It is both kid-friendly and very enjoyable for the children. An activity many of our past kids liked was building and programming a bot that moved in a maze. Not only does our outreach program teach the basics of engineering, but we also improve critical thinking and teamwork.
If you have any questions or comments about outreach for your school please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
