STEM Programs at Aviator Sports

STEM Enrichment

Aviator Sports and Events Center is excited to host A Blake Tech’s Youth STEM Enrichment Program starting in late September.

In addition to hosting the weekly classes at STEM programming from A Blake Tech will become an element incorporated into field trips and After School Programming at Aviator Sports.

The 8 week program theme for Fall 2017 will be robotics. The program’s theme will be explored via Scientific Method to draw conclusions as scientists, Technology will aid in collection of data and investigation, Math will provide the tools to use data and reveal relationships, Engineering allows Young Creators to combine Science, Math and Technology to create complex projects like robots, 3D printed inventions. Program themes include Virtual Reality, 3D printing, App Development and Robotics.

The A Blake Tech STEM Enrichment Program was created when Founder and CEO Anna Blake noticed a lack of STEM programs outside of the school curriculum in Brooklyn and Queens. She has been working in the field of technology since 2005 as a freshman in college. In college she majored in Biology and worked at the Information Technology Helpdesk for all four years. While at the IT Helpdesk she developed an appreciation for technology and how it can help all aspects of life.

Program Overview

Theme: Robotics

Week 1: Orientation

Children and Parents meet and greet the Instructors of The Youth STEM Enrichment program along with a Q & A session.

Week 2: Scientific Method

The young Creators will discover cause and effect relationships with “If…, then..” statements to carefully analyze data and ultimately draw logical conclusions.

Week 3: Intro to Coding

The Young Creators will learn the importance of coding and implement concepts such as debugging by programming Thinkbot robots. Note: language taught will be C++, which is used to hack computers as well as other major tasks.

Week 4: Basic Physics and Linear Algebra

The Young Creators will also gain an understanding of x and y coordinates, variables and word problems.

Week 5: Building the Robotic Arm

The Young Creators will team up to assemble 250 pieces into a 360-degree rotating robotic arm capable of lifting and throwing.

Week 6: Training for the Robotic Arm Olympics

The Young Creators will use math, problem-solving skills, and basic physics to practice 3 basic maneuvers to successfully compete in the Robotic Arm Olympics.

Week 7: Robotic Arm Olympics 2017

Teams will showcase the strength and agility of their robotic arms. The teams must demonstrate proficiency in weightlifting, throwing distance and accuracy with the aid of The Operation Game.

Week 8: Laser Tag Party
