About the Host

Daedalos Enrichment Programs was founded in 2014 by Ana and Barish Golland, in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Both Ana and Barish have a combined 20+ years of experience teaching in K-12 education, Learning Technology and using LEGO® Education in the classroom. Together they have two wonderful children, Lourdes and David, whose creativity and constant desire to learn are their joy and inspiration!

Highlights

  • To help children think critically and logically

  • To develop problem-solving skills

  • To promote collaboration

  • To equip children with transferable technical skills

  • To foster creativity & inspire curiosity

  • To help children be comfortable with tinkering – prototyping, testing, etc.

  • To help children appreciate that the process is more important than the outcome

Class Type

Grades 1-3 (WeDo 1.0, 2.0, NXT) 

WeDo 1.0: Beginner Robotics for Grades 1 - 2

At Daedalos Academy, Introductory Robotic Systems introduces students to basic design and computer programing using mechanical and electronic parts including motors, gears and sensors integrated with LEGO® bricks. The curriculum covers STEM topics: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, as well as language arts learning outcomes. Although the course is designed for students Grades 1 to 2, mature Kindergartners are welcomed between January and June.

WeDo 2.0: Young Engineers for Grades 2 - 3

The new LEGO® Education WeDo 2.0™ is an amazing tool for introducing students grades 2 to 3 to basic engineering, robotics and programming, while incorporating a wider range of important science topics such as recycling, forces of nature, and others.

Science based guided projects include: Pulling, Speed, Robust Structures, Frog’s Metamorphosis, Plants and Pollinators, Prevent Flooding, Drop and Rescue, Sort and Recycle, and much more.

Grades 4-8 (Mindstorms, VEX)

Mindstorms: Robotics and Programming for Grades 4 - 8

Our Robotics + Programming courses are for Grades 3-8 students who are interested in designing and programming robots using the LEGO Mindstorms Education NXT and EV3 sets.*

The students work in pairs, and the learning activities include they will take part in include:

  1. Working in pairs to design and modify simple to complex machines and robots

  2. Brainstorming solutions and come up with a plan to program their robot using LAB View Visual Drag-and-Drop Interface to complete various challenges, usually surrounding a theme (such s recycling, space exploration, natural forces, and disasters, etc)

  3. Collaborating effectively as a team to optimize their robot to participate in friendly contests, races, and challenges, including SumoBot Wrestling, Capture the Flag, and Jousting Tournaments.**

  4. During Spring and Summer Camps, students will also be working through extensive projects such as Stair Climber, Color Sorters, and Tankbot, among others.
