Robotics School hosts a wide range of activities aimed at different age groups. Most activities target children and youth, but we also have programs for adults. Students discover here breakthrough technologies!
We apply hands-on technology in engaging and motivating students to learn science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM curriculum) while equipping them with the real-world knowledge required by today’s global society. Program activities for beginners include basic building and programming whereas advanced courses include more in-depth knowledge and skills of electronics, mechanics, engineering and programming. We believe that true learning takes place when students discover on their own through hands-on, minds-on approach. By allowing children to learn in a process that stimulates, energizes and engages them, children experience a more productive education and deliver better results.
Besides scheduled activities, Robotics School runs children camp. We believe that the combination of meaningful work and organized leisure activities is an effective and fun way of learning. Campers work in small groups to identify challenges in their community they can help to solve using technology. Creativity, imagination, teamwork and innovation are all actively encouraged to ensure children have skills required to design the world of tomorrow!
We are proud to have taken a part in EU project with visually impaired people „Let’s see each other”. During the project blind people talked and shared about challenges they deal with every day. We proposed to reduce the challenges via technological means, e.g. contributing to print 3D models of famous people, well known buildings, as well as local buildings such as schools.
Robotics School also implements a number of projects in rural areas, libraries and schools, in order to acquaint children with the latest technologies. We have participated in a Project “Global Libraries“ (Libraries for Innovation) sponsored by Bill Gates and Melinda Foundation. A project is designed to strengthen the use of public libraries’ capacity with a purpose to provide Lithuanians a better access to information technologies. The project assists people, who until now have not had conditions, to access information technologies and use it in their activities and everyday life. This project has a significant effect to people living in rural areas and fosters education, development of social communication and a better use of information technologies in services. Our school facilitated training to library staff, delivered workshops and prepared learning materials used during the project.
