MINDSTORMS EV3 for Beginners UAE / Dubai ATLAB Office Mon 13 Nov or Mon 11 Dec 0830-1530
Come and learn how to program your first Robot and enter the world of coding and STEM that inspire innovation through a hands on approach. Participants will be introduced to LEGO Education's Icon based coding software and see how those important 21st century skills can be applied in a real world approach. Build a robot and then program it to move about the table and then the room reacting to its environment. Training courses are 750aed per teacher including lunch at our ATLAB office.

Introduction to StoryStarter UAE / Dubai ATLAB Office Wed 22nd Nov 0830-1530
Come and learn how to build concrete stories to help turn reluctant writers into great story creators! Ask the students to build a favorite scene from a movie or book. Just from looking at the one base plate can the rest of the group guess the movie? Develop the day to day storytelling and move into creating 3 and 5 part stories. Students learn to discuss ideas, agree on plot/characters/setting and by collaborating they use each other's talent to create a story board. Descriptive writing for stories will improve dramatically as students capture their ideas with a digital device to review at anytime. Teachers will learn how the product works and develop ideas and strategies to implement successfully into the classroom. Training courses are 750aed per teacher including lunch at our ATLAB office.
