Delaware County Military Academy "DCMA" inspires young people to be science and technology leaders and innovators by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.
STEM:IT and ROBOT:IT is a digital curriculum designed to supplement and fit into your existing curriculum, with plenty of a la carte options to work into your classroom. Using real-world, topic-driven challenges, students use the design cycle to research a topic, make a plan to complete a challenge, engineer a device or create a presentation that meets the challenge, examine their work to make improvements, and share their ideas.
Students discover the value of collaboration and perseverance. Sharing ideas, building on one another's theories and ideas. Building upon innovation, theories and corporate insight. Students would engage in additional programs after school Robotic and Data Engineering Rotary Clubs.
Our robust computer programs intensifies as students master state-level curriculum and computer programming rigor. Students would connect with certified grade-level instructors during the course of the school-day that specialize in academic rigor across course domains. STEM education programs rely upon student engagement cohorts to gain peer to peer interactions that forge appropriate grade level socialism.
While this exposure to robotics has been eye-opening to some parents of children in standardized school, it is right in line with Century 21 learning. Robotics was identified as a key technology development that would drive technology planning and decision-making in schools in the very near term of one year or less. The report reflects the activity already taking place in many schools — the building of robotics programs and development of curriculum that will prepare students for a future that is increasingly focused on science, technology, math and engineering (STEM)
Robotics programs give students hands-on experience in applying essential Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) concepts to real-world problems.
Middle school students are introduced to procedural thinking, pattern recognition, and algorithm design to come up with a step-by-step strategy for solving a problem.
Students can learn how to program their own robots to move, make noise, light up, and follow other instructions as directed.
Students can program drones to engage in laser battles, use a robotic arm to pick up and put down certain objects or play with magnetic robot blocks to make an endless variety of robots with no programming at all
Students can also participate in the construction and programming of robots designed to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge, a global robotics competition for grades 6-8.
