About it

About it

By introducing children to robotics, programming, IT, and crucial problem-solving skills, you are furnishing them with a foundational skill set that could become essential to them in the future. Here is our list or reasons why learning robotics should be taught from an early age:

1. Robotics it's a fun introduction to programming

Rather than completing a line of code that produces a bland but practical function, your students in class will see the results of all their hard work moving right in front of them. It feels more tangible, more entertaining, and more rewarding.

Not only will this teach your students the basics of working with logic-based problems, which will come in useful for many IT, STEM, and mathematics-based careers in the future, but it will give them a good foundation for learning other programming languages.

2. Robotics is an excellent skill for future career development

Programming and other IT-based skills have become an integral part of our modern workforce. With more and more companies switching over to IT-based systems, by introducing your students to programming through robotics, you will be giving them an excellent chance to explore a skill that could potentially turn into a work career in the future.

Even if your child never goes into robotics, it will have the benefit of teaching them principles that can be foundational to many STEM fields.

3. Robotics teaches problem-solving skills

To succeed in robotics takes patience; the courage to work through mistakes; and problem-solving skills. By teaching your students robotics, you are giving them the perfect environment to learn all of these things.

In addition to this, it also gives them the ideal environment to learn how to handle making mistakes. In our increasingly fast-paced society, many children aren’t given the time or space they need to learn how to work through mistakes.

4. Robotics encourages curiosity and creativity

Robotics can also be an excellent activity for stimulating creativity and a curious mind.

With a basic understanding of robotics, there are so many avenues to explore and discover. It will give them the perfect environment to stretch their creative muscles, especially if they are already inclined to building things or show a great deal of curiosity in how things work.

5. Robotics prepares them for a technological future

Our society is becoming increasingly technologically driven. Although our generation could get away with learning the bare minimum when it came to technology, the same cannot be said for our children. Being computer literate is now mandatory in many fields, and increasingly we are seeing that 3D printing and advanced machinery are becoming more and more common in various working environments.

Being comfortable around computers and technology of any kind will not just be a boost for your students’ future, but a necessity.

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • 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!"

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.

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.
