About Storming Robots
Through engineering process along with constructivism and vigorous problem-based learning model, students are engaged in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics with hands-on, application-based robotics projects. Our model has successfully built strong critical thinkers who are well-prepared for their college engineering years. Storming Robots provides an environment that instills a love of learning, incorporating humility and perseverance, and encourages children to appreciate challenges.
Mission:By fueling and reinforcing competency in autonomous learning via hands-on robotics and technology projects, we aim to build a generation that is competitive in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Vision:We will create a generation of analytical and computational thinkers who routinely exercise higher order of thinking and carry an attitude of "learning is like breathing".
Unique and Successful ModelEarly, hands-on experience in robotics and technology prepares students to deal with all types of complex problems that come their way — technological and otherwise — readying them for a wide range of careers within and beyond the technology sphere. Students "actively" participates throughout the learning process. It not only constantly stimulates higher order of thinking, but just as importantly, it strengthens the sense in "taking responsibility of their learning". Programs shift the level from the "doing" to "understanding", from concepts to methods, from science/engineering approach to practice.
Bring System Engineering to Grade School LevelsAt Storming Robots, we bring system engineering to the grade-school level. We provide an application-based learning structure that encourages creative thinking, a skill that helps students transition smoothly to college and stay competitive in any career they choose. Our model prepares students to advance in college engineering studies, such as computer science, artificial intelligence, computer engineering, and mechanical engineering. The achievements of our Roboclub members in tournaments , college level advanced projects, and College profile are a testament to the effectiveness of our model.
Roadmap to Guide.Our programs offer a continuous learning roadmap that students follow from grade 4 to 12. Programs for students in grades 8 to 12 usually involve projects that require algorithmic and computational thinking and analysis. We provide detailed guidance for students who have been with us for several years, creating individualized roadmap for their four years in high school based on their personal learning style, interests, strengths and weaknesses. We have found that this helps students to define themselves clearly and boosts their competitiveness in the college application process. Learn more
Alumni Share College Experience.Some alumni are invited to deliver speech about their latest Engineering/Science Internship experience. Most of these students attend competitive universities.
Capitalize Creativity with Engineering Disciplines.We provide application-based learning structure which encourages continuous “Outside The Box Thinking”. It aims to increase students’ propensity for the transition to colleges and stay competitive in the career which they choose.
Computational Thinking FocusWe provide learning opportunity for “computational doing” to make problem solving and analysis as fluid as possible for children. Computational Thinking (CT) is an underpinning skill for any professions in this digital age. With over 10 years history of providing year-round programs that embed CT in their robotics / computer science through hands-on robotics programs. Talented youth learn and grow through application, not memorization. Projects grab their interest and engaged them with problem solving through not just ad-hoc, but algorithmic method. Learn more
Tailored for those with passion to challenge themselvesMost students attend SR belong to “gifted and talented” programs from their school. However, this is not the major prerequisite for joining our programs. We recognize that even those who do not have top grades often have tremendous potential. Therefore, we welcome any student who has a genuine interest in robotics, mathematics, and engineering.
Ability-Based, not by Grades level.We strongly believe in allowing children to work with peers with similar intellectual caliber in order to maximize the learning experiences. Along with proven strong curriculum obtained from the CMU's Robotics Academy and other resources, all projects conducted onsite are further enhanced with advanced challenge in order to stretch students to their full potential.
Excellent RecordStorming Robots possess thriving outside school enrichment history. Many students joined our program starting their early elementary grades, and continued at SR until College. Some parents also email us about the prolonging effect from our program even at their college years.
Many of our students join us starting elementary school year, and continue with SR until they leave for college, often traveling up to an hour each way to participate in our programs. Learn more
