Pricing

Resolute Robotics requires a once-off purchase, and more than one child can use the materials included in the kit. In the premium version, students are grouped and are assigned a facilitator for the entirety of the course. The premium course also includes weekly webinars throughout the year as well as the opportunity to enter competitions (please see the table below for the differences between the two offerings).

Standard: R3300

  • Adept kit
  • Online learning platform: video-based learning
  • Support

Premium: R5 000

  • Adept kit
  • Online learning platform: video-based learning
  • Weekly online classes
  • Certificate of completion
  • Live chat functionality with a facilitator (instant support)
  • Enter competitions!

Please note: *fees for both versions are payable in full with a non-refundable deposit. Estimated delivery time for the course materials is 4 – 6 weeks.

What’s covered?

  • Scratch programming: game development

  • TinkerCad

  • Electrical circuits and simulations

  • Smart Garden

Overview

The course begins by familiarising learners with the fundamentals of block-based coding in the Scratch environment. This will be followed by:

TinkerCad: in this course, learners will be exposed to the concept of simulation to better understand how electronic circuit components work. This will allow learners to transition from block-based coding to text-based coding.

Arduino and fundamentals of circuit theory: learners will continue to build their knowledge in a practical setting by learning the rules of electronic circuits and working with hardware. The course also teaches learners about Arduino coding, which is an industry-relevant skill.

Smart Garden: learners will be exposed to an engineering-based project where they will challenge their critical thinking skills to design their very own smart garden by applying the practical and theoretical concepts they have learned in the previous courses. The garden will use a moisture sensor to detect whether or not the plant needs more water and/or sunlight.
