The SPACE Program (Saskatoon Public AerospaCe Education) offers a hands-on approach to learning that is focused on students in grades 5-8. The program is housed at Prince Philip School.
The Robotics Workshop is offered to all Grade 6 classes in Saskatoon Public Schools and is an extension of the Grade 6 science curriculum. Before coming to the workshop, students prepare in their classrooms by studying about the solar system and space exploration programs. While at the workshop students will work in teams to build and program Lego robots. During the workshop, students explore the complexities of robots not being on Earth and how they would be controlled and used in different environments. Building the robots is a hands-on and involved process, and being able to program and use the robots encourages students to problem solve.
