Acellus STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) courses are designed to help children age 7 and up to learn advanced coding, robotics, and electronics concepts. The courses provide step-by-step video instruction along with on-computer, guided activities. Students work at their own pace and on their own schedule (no live sessions required). Each course includes quizzes and unit tests to measure mastery of concepts.
Includes Three Exciting Technology Courses:
STEM-1: INTRODUCTION TO CODING
In the first year of STEM-10, students take lessons starting from square zero and then advance step-by-step through the fundamentals of coding. Students are introduced to Cellus Bot, a programmable robot which students control using block coding modules. Students first learn how to control the robot in the most simplistic manner, but as the lessons advance in complexity the robot can perform more complex motions.
STEM-3: ELECTRONICS AND CODING
This course shows how electricity is used to make computers and robotics possible. Students will continue to hone their coding skills while they learn important lessons on voltage, capacitance, resistance, and current. Studies will combine coding and electronic concepts in ways that show how they are used together in the real world.
Hands-on Learning with Acellus STEM Robots
To augment their student’s at-home learning, parents may purchase the custom Acellus robots for use with the STEM-1 and STEM-2 courses. While each course is self-contained and may be completed using the on-screen robot simulator built into the course, a physical robot can enhance the student’s coding experience, helping them understand how their code can manipulate things in the real world.
Cellus Bot: Code-Teaching Robot
Cellus Bot integrates into the STEM-1 course and is outfitted with lights, censors, and a motor that students can manipulate using the block coding modules. As an additional touch, Cellus Bot sports a laser which draws shapes and circles as the robot dances. The built-in accelerometer supports program-controlled responses to movements and positioning of the robot.
AC-D2: Advanced Dancing STEM Robot
Up to Seven Courses Included
Your Power Homeschool subscription also includes up to seven K-12 courses to enhance your students’ at-home learning experience. Subjects include math, science, language arts, social studies, and many more.
