About it

In this edition, participants will complete 5 days of training and competition. On Monday, we will learn the basics of 3D design: what 3D software looks like, how to create a design within 3D software, and start printing our first designs. On Tuesday, students will continue to design their own, now that the printers are ready we can see what we need to change and can add. At the end of the day, we will print out our modified designs again. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be working on designing our own escape room. The objects that we have printed will play a major role in the creation of this escape room (think of a key, for example). 

At the end of Friday we are all going to play our escape room and it is going to be great fun!

 

THE STORY

Mr Melon MuskTycoon Melon Musk is recruiting the best engineers to send on a secret mission. After a grueling selection process, only 20 incredibly smart engineers remain... but Mr. Musk only needs to hire 10 of them. This is his plan: he is going to divide the 20 engineers into two teams, each team is going to build an escape room having to overcome the escape room of the opposing team. The contestants will use robotics, video game programming, 3D printers and many other tools so that the opponents do not manage to overcome their escape room. Do you think you have what it takes? Sign up for 'The Great Escape' and convince Mr Musk that you are the one.

  • A fantastic tool for teachers

    "Galactiq is a fantastic tool for teachers. It helps manage the flow of the lesson, get an overview of how students are doing, encourages student participation and collaboration. It is very comfortable to teach using Galactiq!"

  • Simple and effective

    "The step by step construction and coding instructions on galatIQ were simple and effective, ensuring student success regardless of their ability.  Along with the instructions, the online tutorials kept students engaged and encouraged them to grow in confidence over the course of the week.  The students particularly were inspired to be ambitious with their designs; creating unique and innovative robots. Overall, it is a brilliant experience!"

  • "A practical approach with a lot of creativity ..."

    My kids attended the galactIQ Academy for more than two years. During this period, Diego and Gabriel learned many cool things such as programming with Scratch, creating websites with Javascript and HTML, programming Lego based robots, among others. 

    The staff are kind, professional and always willing to help. The approach is hands on with a lot of creativity involved. It was a very pleasant and rewarding experience for my kids. I strongly recommended it for all kids (and adults) who want to develop programming and robotics skills while applying their creativity and enjoying an entertaining learning environment.

  • "...the lesson was so well scaffolded..."

    We used the first episode in the robotics series and our students thoroughly enjoyed the lesson.  The instructions were comprehensive for both the students and the teachers and the children could follow them to build their individual rover and were thrilled to see that the commands they set made the rover move.  As teachers, we valued the fact that the lesson was so well scaffolded and it included opportunities for discussion as well as for practising digital skills.  We can see the potential of this educational solution and how it could complement a primary school’s curriculum.

  • It's easy and fun

    "Galactiq is the perfect way to learn and teach coding and robotics to younger kids, even when having minimal to no coding experience yourself. Before each class, I go over today's lesson to gain an understanding of today's targets and goals. With hands-on information solely available for teachers, you can use Galactiq as a manual to learn everything needed to teach the class."

    Caro Cools
  • Impressive!

    "The video game development episodes are broken down into manageable steps, which allowed all the children in my class to develop a functioning, playable game. What really impressed me though, were the opportunities to experiment with the code; allowing my class to create a truly unique game. I can’t believe how quick we went from zero to hero!"

Brain

Media Literacy

Behaviour, safety and understanding
A 'must' for all kids in primary schools. Students will learn to recognise the complex mechanisms of the online environment they grow surrounded with. Through debating and investigating your class will fully understand the online world.

Robotics

Learning engineering is key
By teaching engineering and robotics to kids at an early age, you are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future.

Game Development

Plan, design, develop and test
The video game creation process includes planning, designing, programming, testing, and launching a game. A complete digital creative process that reinforces the confidence and programming skills of your students.

Web Development

Programming languages ​​from an early age
Programming languages are part of a strong and smart education for the new generations. Javascript, CSS, HTML or Python are easy to teach and learn thanks to the galactIQ educational method.

Digital Creativity

Where they expand their creative horizons
We want our students not only to understand the rudiments and fundamentals of technology, at galactIQ we also aim at making primary school students creative with the tools we learn to use.
