Laying a Strong STEM foundation

The Engineering projects are fun to do and students learn science concepts  

Why robotics?  Because it’s exciting for students and is the premier vehicle for hands-on delivery of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts to students. Our robotics program provides an enjoyable yet challenging classroom environment in which students can develop important 21st-century skills such as creative problem-solving, communication of ideas, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and teamwork. They learn while at the same time having Fun!

  • ENGINEERING AGE 5

Students Ages 6-8 Learn to Build & program robots using the Lego platform

ROBOTICS with Lego WeDo

This is an exciting robotics programs for kids that enhances their interest to learn STEAM concepts. This course teaches  a number of skills we use in the real world. This Beginner robotics programs lay a foundation in problem-solving skills and creativity as they learn to assemble the robot and enabling them to do certain actions.

When the robots fails to do what they are set out for, children have to troubleshoot to solve the issues and that develops their problem solving skills.


Students work as young scientists and engineers,  while learning concepts in Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM). Students use the WeDo Robotics platform performing a series of theme-based activities and build models featuring working motors and sensors. They program their robot models using graphical software interface.

.

Students lean a broad range of Concepts Covering the STEAM areas

It's not just building with legos or making the robots move. The  process of learning is integrated with the fun projects that the students do. Learning is therefore effortless. Concepts from engineering, Simple machines, Biology, etc are introduced to the students. 

Individualized Learning & Progress tracking

Individualized learning is possible as the students are guided using our state of the art computerized learning system while the teacher monitors and supports the students learning.

Learning Programming is fun

Age appropriate and engaging classes to teach students programming skills  

Here the students will explore the world of Programming & Game Design and learn to think like Software Engineers and Game Developers.  The Classes and Camps for programmers range from Scratch Jr for young beginners to advanced languages like Robot C, C, Java, Python, HTML, JavaScript and also to Mobile App Development for advanced programmers. For the passionate game designers, we explore the the world of 3D game development on Unity as well as program in Minecraft.

Children love to play video games. Why not show them how to create their own games instead and channel their interest and creativity!  Learning is fun because the visual programming allows kids to rapidly transform ideas into actual programs by connecting blocks. Guided projects are given to the kids and once they are proficient, they can apply what they've learned and build their own unique games. Video game based learning and traditional methods don’t need to be mutually exclusive. Game based learning complements the shortcomings of traditional teaching in many ways.

Learning Programming Languages

Python Programming

Python is a programming language that is suitable for beginners. It is easy to read and write. 

Students learn the Syntax which is the basic set of rules that programming languages use. These rules are Python’s equivalent of grammar and punctuation. Python’s syntax is necessary for structuring a program so that the computer can understand the instructions the programmer is giving it.

MIT APP INVENTOR

MIT App Inventor is a software programming tool where students learn to build functional apps for smartphones and tablets. Students learn how to get their first app up and running in the very first class. They learn blocks-based tool to create complex, high-impact apps in significantly less time than traditional programming environments. Blocks-based coding programs inspire intellectual and creative empowerment for kids. The curriculum is based on teaching students to think computationally: to decompose problems, abstract and modularize, reuse and remix existing solutions, and to test fully to arrive at a working solution. Students will use MIT App Inventor, a blocks-based programming language with a development environment that runs in a browser, to design and build mobile apps. Students build their digital confidence and become empowered to create, rather than just use technology in their lives.

Mr. Joshua Yalowitz

If it blinks lights, turns gears or reacts to sensors, Mr. Josh has worked with it. Josh has a deep interest in electrical engineering and computing and has worked with micro-controllers like the Arduino for more than a decade. He has experience in rapid prototyping, CAD design, 3D printing, electric circuit design, wood working, metal working and fabrication, to name a few. He mentored high school students at Marshall High School in Falls Church to help them rebuild their robotics program and took them to the semi-finals this year. He firmly believes that incorporating science and technology into the lives of children at a young age onwards will advance their critical thinking and logical thinking abilities and these skills will advance them significantly in life. Mr. Josh is on his way to becoming a licensed Technology teacher for the county. Mr. Josh will be helping Ms. Soumya in all the STEAM and Lego/Robotics courses at Science Cosmos.

Mrs. Soumya Sriram

Mrs. Soumya Sriram

With a ton of experience working in Montessori school system, Soumya brings creative ideas to convey fundamental concepts to the children. She is most passionate about the "spark" that she sees in the child when they get those concepts in Physics. She loves incorporating, physics, engineering and general science concepts including life sciences into her classroom.

A great resource for boys and girls who love to create

My child was at the summer camp at Science Cosmos. This is a great resource for boys and girls who love to create things with Lego, K-nex, Robotics, etc. Those are the activities that promote math skills. Learning how each piece fits together and seeing what they can make is a valuable challenge to the mind. >> MORE PARENT TESTIMONIALS

I recommend it frequently to parents who have strong interests in STEM

My Son looks forward to going to class and also has fun interacting with all the other like-minded kids as they work on their projects and coursework. We have also sent him to summer camps here and he loved those as well.

I have been so impressed and happy with this program and I recommend it frequently to parents who have children who have strong interests in STEM. With the pace of advancements in technology, and with the limitations of school based offerings on these subjects, it's very difficult to keep a child engaged and growing without a supporting program like this. Thanks Science Cosmos!
