Fun Automation with Green Fingers!
Over at KidsCode, we would want to introduce the concept of Internet of Things in a fun and simple way. We have seen how internet has transformed the way education and businesses are conducted. It is highly probable that Internet will continue to play an important role in our daily lives. Thus, we strive to equip your kids with the latest 21st century competencies in this digitally networked world.
During the lesson, your kids will be using a series of microcontrollers, sensors and actuators, to allow gardening to be done in a much more efficient way. Learning is definitely easier with hands on practice on the equipment.
After the completion of the gardening project, we will get the kids to reflect, to think creatively and innovatively on how to improve the gardening project. The kids are supposed to think out of the box and self-direct their own learning.
- Some fundamental programming knowledge
How do we at KidsCode impart our knowledge to your child?
