About it

In this edition of the summer camp, the participants will build a space rover and send it on a mission! Engineering, creativity and problem solving are important requirements to complete this mission successfully. Kids will play and learn super cool techniques such as Arduino Robotics, hacking, programming, building and so much more.

On Monday the mission will be explained to the participants and each team will build their own space rover with Lego WeDo. On Tuesday the mission starts and the participants will soon find out that there will be many obstacles to successfully completing the mission... Every day a new obstacle is introduced that has to be solved with a limited number of materials. 

 

THE STORY

guardians of the galaxy. GalactIQ Academy Summer Camps

Year 2022, tycoon Melon Musk discovers a new planet in which we can live, but for this it is necessary to build an oxygenation tower so that humans can breathe in that new environment. Mr. Must's engineering team asks the MASA (Maastricht Association of Sustainable Astronomists) for help and they prepare a mission to reach the oxygenation tower and repair it. For this mission, the best 20 MASA engineers are recruited. Your objective is to build some rovers on the new planet, reach the ‘peaceful hill’ and construct the oxigen tower. For this mission they only have 5 days and they will have to solve many unknown problems and challenges. Will they manage to turn the new planet into a habitable place? Will this mission succeed? Enroll now in the 'Antenna Mission' and become a hero.

  • 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!"

    Paulius Skaisgir
  • 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.
