Excelsior! FRLC rose up the ante at this level as students aged 9 and up were able to discover and create new exciting robotic concepts into reality. Like the heroes of the X-Men, students actualized the creation of robots of varying abilities which were able to overcome and answer the programming challenges and obstacles presented to them. The X-Mutant Academy presented two levels of LEGO Robotics during the summer in the form of junior and senior levels.

The junior level, which makes use of the LEGO Mindstorms NXT, introduced students to some of the basic concepts of robotics. One of these concepts is the ability to move around. Students were guided to create a robot which was able to go and solve a maze successfully through the use of an accompanying computer program. Another exciting concept is creation of “The Iceman” which allowed students to create and conceptualize their own design to create a robot which can throw balls and objects into distance. Some students opted to create catapults with a longer arm for maximum throwing distance while some students made catapults with a shorter arm yet stable base. 

The senior level introduced students to more advanced ideas using robots.  In the senior level, students used LEGO Mindstorms EV3, the advanced counterpart to the NXT, to create and program robots. On their third session, students learned to create a robot which can solve and finish a maze using a touch sensor. Students were guided to create a program which allowed the robot to move left or right as it bumped its touch sensor onto a wall.

Both junior and senior programs’ last session allowed students to create a robot of their own design. Students excitingly used their mobile phones to control their robots through an intricately designed obstacle course. Students would hobble and run around the course to view their robots; hobble and rush to pick it when it hits an obstacle; think and move fast to troubleshoot their robots as they travel through the X-Mutant Academy Obstacle Course.

These experiences in FRLC not only let children play and build using LEGO but also the ability to create robots straight out of their imaginations and give students an opportunity to think outside the “brick”. -- TJC


Not all schools offer every program you might have an interest with. By attending summer workshops, you’ll be able to pursue your interests and gain knowledge and experience in subjects you wouldn’t normally have access to.

FIRST Robotics Learning Center, together with Willow Tree Learning Center, conducted a robotics workshop last January 27, 2018 to March 24, 2018 at 73, Sta. Catalina St., St. Peter, Quezon City. It was our sixth year in conducting summer robotics workshop at Willow Tree Learning Center. It was a 9-session-robotics workshop that took place every Saturdays of the said date.

The workshop was a success and we are thrilled to announce that we are having our second batch of summer robotics workshop this coming June 11, 2018. For more information, you may call Willow Tree at 712-97-48/732-66-68.

Inquire now and let your kids enjoy and understand robotics through STEM Education. -- RCM

First Robotics Learning Center conducted a 6-day Robotics Workshop at Clay and Potter School located at T. Alonzo St, Tambo, Paranaque City. In this workshop, FRLC offered 3 levels namely: 4+ level (ages 4 to 5 y/o) wherein student at this level uses LEGO DUPLO to create figures as a part of their workshop. Kids at this level will learn how to go out from the box and explore their ideas to make extraordinaire Lego figures. To add more, students will also practice their communicating skills and social skills to interact with other student. Sharing ideas with a good communication and social skill will provide the student to have a much better understanding of how to make their ideas into a replica of a real object using Lego duplo. Lastly, Kids at this level will learn how simple machine works, how an object can spin, bend and lift.

Next is the 6+ level (ages 6 to 8 y/o) used LEGO WEDO 2.0, a newly introduced Lego materials for this level, it has a wireless materials giving students a much better  exploration of their projects and what it can do more. At this level, information about technology is incorporated by programming their project using computer. Each project has activities that they need to complete as part of their Workshop. Students learned how to communicate with others to form teamwork, do some Math computations, Science concept in building and testing their projects and so many more.

Lastly, the 9+ level (Ages 9 to 16 y/o) is the highest level the FRLC offered for this workshop. At his level, kids used the third generation of LEGO EV3 Mindstorm. Projects made to engage the kids into deep analytical and logical skills by programming. Broader and harder concepts were involved and problem solving skills were tested. Designing an advanced project is the main goal of this level with a task needed to comply at the end of every workshop. -- KBG

Children will pratice and improve their psychological thinking skills such as analyzing and solving basic programs and making their ideas broader and put it into physical building. FRLC uses Lego Duplo for the children to practice their motor skills in building. This program gives the kids the drive to help themselves to finish what they had started and continue what they have learned.
