Intelitek-Powered Robots Go Head-to-Head in Elementary School Robot Wars

A fleet of robots built and programmed by elementary students recently went head to head in the exciting Vex Robotics Tournament held at Richton Elementary School in Richton MS. Robots were tasked with moving objects around an obstacle course, earning points for each successful move.

Richton’s team was completely made up of 6th graders, making them by far the youngest team entering the competition. Teachers were also quick to point out to KFVS12 News that there were just as many girls competing as boys, showing that these exciting initiatives are encouraging more and more enterprising students to explore a career in manufacturing, robotics and computer science.

To get the most out of the competition, robots are delivered to the teams completely unassembled, and it’s up to the students to build them from scratch. It’s a challenging and fun activity with a competitive element that gets kids highly interested in STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Other useful real-world skills are fostered, such as project management, time management, working in groups and problem solving. The competition is a culmination of a lot of hard work and determination from these young engineers.

We’re proud that this initiative is running on Intelitek’s software, with students programming their robots using easyC, a programming language designed to be powerful enough to perform advanced operations but simple enough for young students to pick up.

Look for the “Micro/Macro”, a VEX EDR robot driven and autographed by Mike Rowe at our Interactive Exhibitor display area booth E1017. Play robot Freeze tag with your friends or adversaries and ask one of our team members how to participate in our QR code sweepstakes to enroll for a 90 day license of EasyC v5. One lucky registrant will win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 tablet.

Our team of experts will also be assiting VRC Middle School, VRC High School and VEX U teams participating in the VEX EDR Highrise competition at the Software Support desk answering easyC v4 and easyC v5 technical questions.

This will be our first year offering assistance to Elementary and Middle school VEX IQ teams at the VEX IQ Highrise Challenge Software Support desk for teams using easyC v5 for VEX IQ.

Intelitek Announces New Online Self-Paced Professional Development Courses

Intelitek is introducing an exciting new range of online self-paced courses for professional development. Designed to give educators the toolkit to keep students’ minds engaged and increase their commitment to study, the courses also offer teachers a flexible way to earn competitively-priced CEU credits.

Manchester, NH (PRWEB) February 18, 2015

Intelitek, a leading provider of modern educational technology with over 30 years of experience, is introducing an exciting new range of online self-paced courses for professional development. These 5-hour courses help both new and experienced teachers become dynamic educators. Designed to give educators the toolkit to keep students’ minds engaged and increase their commitment to study, the courses also offer teachers a flexible way to earn competitively-priced CEU credits.

Introduction to Online Teaching Methodologies/Flipped Classroom teaches educators how to flip a classroom, use online teaching to its full potential and maximize the use of one-on-one contact time in the classroom. Educators will learn the key attributes of the new tech-savvy student, how they learn, and how to best facilitate this learning. After successfully completing the course, teachers can better use online discussion boards, construct courses that work well online and manage a flipped classroom effectively.

How to Tweet and Blog for Educational Purposes explains the complex world of Twitter and blogging in education. These powerful tools, when used effectively, create a personal learning network for students, enabling their critical thinking. A teacher who completes this course will be able to make the best use of Twitter, set up a blog, and use both of them effectively to engage students.

21st Century Classroom offers teachers the power to using technology to productively modernize their classroom. In such a classroom, students gain the knowledge and skills they will need in the real world. This course teaches how to use technology to facilitate learning instead of creating a distraction. Teachers completing the course will be knowledgeable in new learning tools that simplify and streamline the modern classroom.

Courses are delivered through Intelitek’s revolutionary modern learning management system LearnMate7, enabling teachers to complete the courses online at their own pace. The online-provided curriculum is not leader-led and has no stop or start time, allowing teachers to complete the courses in a manner that best suits their busy schedules.

Teachers will receive a full downloadable completion certificate at the end of each course that details the learning objectives completed and the tasks undertaken. Intelitek can provide further documentation should the Continuing Education Units granting body require it.

Each 5-hour course costs just $49 per participant, with new courses being added on a monthly basis.
