For the second year in a row, the RoboclubIF team has been actively working on expanding the educational boundaries of extracurricular education for children with special educational needs.
The support of the Urban Space 100 public restaurant and the Ivano-Frankivsk Inclusive Resource Centre allowed developing and adapting a one-year training course, arranging and holding a training program on the basics of robotics and programming for children with special educational needs aged 7–9 years as part of the projects: "KidsDO" and"KidsDO-2".
These projects aim to create a convenient and effective IT curriculum for hearing impaired primary-school children.
The KidsCREATE project aims to continue to support the already created environment, to adapt the next part of the curriculum on the basics of visual programming, robotics and the development of engineering thinking for children with special educational needs aged 8–11.
The children will attend the integrated lessons including robotic science, development of engineering structures and visual programming for five months. The training course will be developed on the basis of:
- Visual environment of Scratch object-oriented programming
- Lego Education series
- Methods of Design Squad engineering experiments
The maximum number of children in the group is 12 people.
The number of lessons is 20.
The duration of one lesson is 1 hour 30 minutes.
The day of the week is Sunday.
Funds provided by Urban Space 100 will cover the costs to develop the training program, design notebooks, print educational materials, pay teachers, language interpreters and administrators.
