Robotics Programming Class (Non-Competitive) - Cumming
Our robotics course is designed to introduce students to the exciting world of robotics. Throughout the course, students will learn the fundamentals of robotic design and programming, developing skills that are increasingly important in today's technologically advanced world.

The course is structured around hands-on projects, where students will have the opportunity to program their own robots and solve unique problems. They will learn about the different components of a robot, how they work together, and how to program them to perform tasks.

The course also encourages creativity and problem-solving skills. Students are encouraged to design their own robotic solutions to challenges, fostering a spirit of innovation and critical thinking.

Our experienced instructors guide students through every step of the process, providing personalized instruction based on each student's needs and progress. With their expertise in robotics, students are well-equipped to explore and excel in this fascinating field.

The learning option available is group sessions with a maximum of 6 students, fostering collaborative learning and teamwork.

This course is perfect for students who are interested in technology, engineering, and computer science. No prior experience is necessary - all that's needed is curiosity and a willingness to learn!

While having FUN!, students will learn about ;

- Engineering concepts such as Systems Development Life-Cycle and Engineering Design Process
- Building a basic Robot with LEGO pieces
- Programming the Robot with EV3 MINDSTORM block programming language
- Testing the robot on a pre-designed course and modify programming

Classes will begin on September 3, 2023 at 10 AM.

During his teaching and school administrative years, he coached students and teams in various extra-curricular activities such as high school level FTC robotics competitions, elementary school level FLL competitions, state-wide Tech Fair competitions, and state-wide Webchallenge competitions organized by TAG-Ed collaborative. Through curricular and extra-curricular activities, students learned web design, programming and engineering concepts; developed team work skills, critical-thinking skills and problem solving skills; earned scholarship toward their college education as a reward of winning placement at competitions.

He coached the High School Robotics Team for 3 years while he is teaching at charter high school. The team received Motivate Award at the International FTC Robotics Competition in St. Louis. Robotics team was recognized by the local Education Board as well. At the time, this award was the first achievement ever received by a Georgia robotics team at the international level FTC Robotics competitions. This award is given to teams show the best team effort, spirit and collaboration.

After high school teaching years, he helped elementary school level FLL robotics teams and their coaches as a robotics head coach when he was working as Assistant Principal at the charter elementary school. Robotics teams he helped and guided named as FLL Georgia State Champions -two years in a row- in 2014 and 2015 at FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Robotics Competitions.

He leads Academic Enrichment Program, coaches robotics teams at Sunshine STEM Academy Micro School.

Python Programming Class - Alpharetta
This Python Programming Class is designed to introduce the fundamentals of programming using Python, a popular high-level programming language known for its simplicity and readability. Participants will learn the basics of Python syntax, data types, and control flow constructs. They will also be exposed to practical programming exercises and challenges.

The class also introduces students to the concept of top-down design, a method commonly used in software development for designing and organizing systems. This class is suitable for both beginners who have no previous programming experience and those who want to deepen their understanding of Python.

Why STEM Education is Important?

STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases science and technology literacy, and enables the next generation of innovators. Innovation leads to new products and processes that sustain the economy. This innovation and science literacy depends on a solid knowledge base in the STEM areas.

National Science Foundation states that in the 21st century, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy. To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.
