Coding and Robotics

Zayo-Bot

The world is moving forward, and now more than ever we need to give future generations every opportunity to leverage the power of modern technology and thrive in the digital age.

Start with the basics. Learn coding and robotics with UKS, in partnership with Resolute Education, as we aim to take you on a tech journey from learning block-based coding to understanding the fundamentals of Artificial intelligence. These are the perfect tools for an internal library program that will bring excitement and energy through your doors, drive engagement and growth in your community.

Engineering  |  Computer Science  |  Data Sciences
Let UKS Help you to teach essential skills such as:

Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Complex Problem-Solving, Coordination With Peer

These courses contain progressive integrated understanding of coding, theory and practical application

Codes Included:

Block-Based Coding, Scratch Coding, C++, Python, Java Script

Novice Stream

During this course, learners will gain a better understanding of pattern recognition, sequencing, and practical problem-solving. With the use of logical thinking in many of the activities, they will be able to take what they experience in their real-life world and apply it to robotics and coding. They will have covered the beginning stages of block coding and have a good understanding of the capabilities of robots, how they function in the world around us, and how to use them to make tasks easier.

Learners will explore the following concepts:

Algorithm, Decomposition, Patterns, Abstraction

These concepts are delivered through tinkering, debugging, persevering, and collaborating. Our curriculum is delivered via an online platform that contains comprehensive teacher guides enabling teachers with little or no experience to facilitate a robust learning experience. 

Apprentice Stream

This course begins with an introduction to basic computer skills. Once learners have gained a basic knowledge of computer skills and their fundamental components such as the internet and e-communications, the learners will then progress to an introductory course on MakeCode. This platform will provide the learners with the opportunity to create interactive and engaging programming experiences as first-time members of the world of programming. Possessing this knowledge and skills will form a foundation for a tailored experience enabling learners to create and run user programs on stimulated targets such as the Micro:Bit and Micro:Bit car.

Learners will explore the following concepts:

Scratch Coding, Micro:bit Board, Micro:bit Car

These concepts are delivered through tinkering, debugging, persevering, and collaborating. Our curriculum is delivered via an online platform that contains comprehensive teacher guides enabling teachers with little or no experience to facilitate a robust learning experience.

Advanced Stream

The Resolute Advanced Kit is a great way for students to continue their robotics journey. It includes all the components needed to build a range of projects such as the Autonomous Line Following Car and the Access Control System using RFID tags. With a little bit of creativity, these components can be used to build hundreds of other projects. This kit gives you access to an online platform where step-by-step video instructions are given to help you learn and build with ease.

The course starts off with an introduction to the fundamentals of Arduino programming and electronic circuit theory fundamentals. Students will learn about simulation, sensors, automation and processing real-world data. They’ll get creative with a practical project like the Autonomous Line Following Car where an infrared sensor is used to detect a black line and an Arduino uno is programmed to send a set of instructions to the DC motors directing the car.

Students will be challenged further by applying their programming and engineering skills to design and build an access control system. They’ll create their own security system by programming an RFID tag to automatically open a door, granting access to authorised personnel only.

Students will also learn to master the world’s most popular coding language, Python. They’ll learn essential game development concepts such as controlling player and non-player sprites, implementing in-game physics and collision, object-oriented game design, randomization and artificial intelligence.
