Children explore robotics for the first time!

Thank you so much to each of you who support ORT SA CAPE's science and robotics workshops through CHW's page on GlobalGiving! You are giving children from disadvantaged communities around Cape Town the chance to learn about science and technology. 

 

Janet and Talya at ORT SA CAPE gave the following updates from a recent workshop that was sponsored by CHW's supporters:

----

Recently, Mfusi Tshingilane brought in 13 children from his Kwaitos soccer club in Tambo Village, to do Robotics with ORT SA CAPE.

Robotics help to develop critical thinking, reading and listening skills, as well as hand-eye coordination.

On the day, the children built dancing bird robots using Lego WeDo. This was an introductory project, as the children had never done any robotics before. Most of the children were able to complete the building and programming of their robots.

The children also visited the Science Centre and explored the various exhibits. 

The children were provided with lunch and they throughly enjoyed the food.

Phatokuhle and Mbali, both aged 9 and in Grade 4, are part of a community building project, which is also run by Mfusi Tshingilane. They very much enjoyed the learning experience offered at ORT SA CAPE. They concentrated hard when building their robot, eager to find the correct pieces, and, working together, they were able to successfully programme their robot. 

Janet and Talya stated: "Smiles were infectious as the children's confidence and skills grew throughout the workshop. Proud of their hard work, they left feeling motivated and inspired."

----

A massive thank you to each person who supports this project. Children from disadvantaged communities in Cape Town would not usually have opportunities like these. This also means that they may not know much about careers in science and technology and the workshops open their minds to new possibilities for when they are older.  Thank you for giving this opportunity to these children!
