TSN Naval Academy Robotic Programming Classes

Most young cadets know how to use technology effectively, but they do not know what it takes to create it? There is a high level of importance of robotics and coding for the young at the moment. Digital literacy is on the rise, and helping children read code to understand is important.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. These are categories which are closely related to engineering and computing. In a nutshell, STEAM is necessary for creating new technologies and know how it works.

Children should be exposed to computational thinking as early as possible and allowed access to modern teaching methods such as STEAM coding in order to keep track with the ever-changing technological trends that are dominating our world today. Moreover, children between the age of 8-13 are curious about how to make things work. In other words, this is the period where their brains act like sponges and absorb everything they learn until they grow up. Seeing is believing and robots can embody that process.

The TSN Naval Academy is preparing to provide weekly classes for our young cadets with robotics programming this May. These classes will provide our cadets the opportunity to learn how to program robots to complete tasks assigned by the Commandant. Details are available and enrollment will open mid March.
