Summer Camp

About STEM Tinkering Camp

STEM Tinkering Camp is an initiative of ThinnkWare to make students’ science concepts understanding easier through hands-on learning integrating STEM Education. This is a unique course designed for school students performing some cool activities during their hot summer vacation.

Unlike our previous RoboCamp this year we have conceptualized the STEM tinkering camp understanding the need of the hour. Along with our regular Robotics courses, we have introduced electronics projects & Arduino Programming.

The sole purpose of STEM Boot Camp is to provide the student with a platform where they are exposed to the most critical concepts in Education. Each participating student becomes a part of the subject and experiences Science by the idea of Learning by doing.

We strongly believe that this unique process of teaching is beyond all existing conventional teaching processes. We provide the student with a platform and encourage him to use his logic and build the bot. The overall objective of the program is create a fun environment where at the end of every session, the student is given ample time to get accustomed with the robot. The program helps the student in getting visual grasp of concepts of Math and Science thereby enhancing the problem solving skills. In addition to the above, at the end of ever session, we share various real life examples with the student so that the learning does not stop once the session is over.

The STEM tinkering camp offers 5 courses:

Robotics Tinkering is a basic fun camp in Robotics, where students will be learning how to make different mechanical & programmable robots. They will make 8 different Robots and also learn the science concepts. Participants: Class 3 onwards, who are interested in Robotics.

Takeaway kit: MechanzO 6+ Robot kit. Duration: 2 weeks (8 days & 12 hours).
Robotics covers subjects like Electronics, Mechanical, and Programming skills. A student can explore various connections between these subjects. Each student is given a Problem Statements and encouraged to use his/her logic to come up with an innovative design every time they use the MechanzO.
