Hands-on Learning:
Our interactive courses provide a hands-on approach to learning, making coding accessible and enjoyable for kids of all ages.

OUR APPROACH

At Resolute, the journey begins with an exciting introduction to LEGO Spike. Students are provided with LEGO Spike kits, which are designed to ignite their curiosity and creativity. In this initial step, kids become familiar with the hardware components, such as motors, sensors, and the intelligent LEGO Spike Hub.

At Resolute, we believe in learning through hands-on experiences. Our Robotics via LEGO Learning program is designed to introduce kids to the fascinating world of robotics, engineering, and programming through the beloved medium of LEGO. Through this program, children will:

  • Learn Engineering Concepts: Kids will learn essential engineering principles as they design, build, and program their own robots using LEGO Spike and Mindstorms kits.
  • Problem Solving: Our curriculum promotes critical thinking and problem-solving through real-world challenges and robotics projects.
  • Teamwork: Working in teams, children develop effective communication and collaboration skills as they prepare for competitions and showcase their creations.

Before diving into hands-on building and coding, our instructors lay the foundation by explaining the fundamental concepts of robotics. Kids learn about:

  • Mechanical Engineering: Understanding how gears, axles, and connectors work together to create functional robots.
  • Sensors: Exploring the capabilities of sensors like touch, color, and distance sensors, which enable robots to interact with the environment.
  • Programming Logic: Introducing basic programming logic, such as loops, conditions, and sequences, which form the basis for coding robots.

LEARNING PROCESS

With the basics in place, it’s time for kids to get their hands on LEGO Spike kits and start building their own robots. Guided by our experienced instructors, students follow step-by-step instructions to construct robots that can perform various tasks and challenges.

LEGO Education software plays a crucial role in enhancing the learning experience. Kids are introduced to the LEGO Education software platform, which includes:

  • Spike App: This user-friendly app allows students to control and program their robots through an intuitive interface.
  • Coding Environment: Kids explore the coding environment within the software, where they will drag and drop blocks to create programs for their robots.

With a robot in hand and LEGO Education app at their disposal, kids are ready to bring their creations to life. They learn to program their robots to:

  • Navigate Challenges: Program robots to move, turn, and respond to sensors, enabling them to complete specific tasks and challenges.

  • Solve Problems: Encourage problem-solving by debugging code and making adjustments to improve robot performance.

Learning at Resolute is not a solitary experience. Kids work collaboratively with their peers, sharing ideas and collaborating on group projects. 

At Resolute, we prepare our students to excel in prestigious competitions such as such as IEEE and FIRST LEGO League. These competitions provide a platform for young innovators to showcase their skills and creativity on a global stage. Our institute equips students with the knowledge and experience needed to participate confidently and excel in these events.

Coding is a fundamental skill in today’s digital age, and at Resolute, we make it engaging and exciting with Microsoft MakeCode and LEGO integration. Students will:

  • Explore Coding: Through the Microsoft MakeCode platform, kids will learn the basics of coding in JavaScript and Python while having fun with LEGO projects.
  • Hands-on Learning: Our interactive courses provide a hands-on approach to learning, making coding accessible and enjoyable for kids of all ages.
