SINDA Digital Day – Preschool Robotics Workshop


ABOUT

Programme


This September holidays, SINDA will be having its first SINDA Digital Day! As part of this Digital Day, we will be having a robotics workshop for pre-schoolers.

In this workshop, pre-schoolers will be introduced to Strawbees. Through Strawbees, preschoolers will get the opportunity to engage in hands-on work with design, construction, electronics and programming all at the same time! They will also gain a better understanding of what programming is and how it can impact the world.

Through this workshop to create their own “Mechanical Arm”, pre-schoolers will:

  • Understand the basic function of a scissor mechanism, its properties, and how changing them affects the overall movement
  • Learn to make collapsible objects and how they can be easily transported and adapted
  • Get to customise and strengthen the mechanical arm structure
  • Participate in a mini group competition

 

There will also be a parenting talk on Responsible Limit Setting on IT-related usage for children and teens happening concurrently. (10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.)

In this talk, parents will be introduced to skills pertaining to:

  • Preventive teaching with children to set acceptable limits on IT-related usage.
  • Corrective teaching with children and teens if they do not comply with parents’ instructions on IT-related usage.
  • Teaching self-control to children and teens so that they can regulate personal emotions and feelings if parents impose consequences limiting their IT usage.

Refreshments will be served after the programme.
