Where are the workshops?
What is going on here?
In our age where information is so accessible, the key to success is; learning by doing, living, dreaming, being curious, working hard, and not being afraid of making mistakes. Your self-realization will be possible by turning your curiosity and dreams into action. You do not need to have any technical knowledge to take this course! Enthusiasm and excitement is all that is required! We guarantee your excitement will increase as you learn!
What are we going to do at this camp?
In this summer camp, you will learn the foundations of Arduino and how to code in C coding language. You’ll complete Arduino challenges to learn the basics of robotics. We don’t just cover the fundamental concepts, but also hands-on, real-life application cases. You will gain practical experience working with sensors, modules, motors, and many more circuit elements.
With Arduino projects from simple to complex, you will learn how to use sensors, modules and motors, and many more circuit elements. You will be able to produce your projects by activating your imagination on how to apply your Arduino knowledge to new projects.
We passionately believe that the best way to learn is to do. You will learn robotics and programming by doing many different projects such as automation and control of Bluetooth robotics cars and you will deeply dive into programming and engineering using the Arduino microcontroller.
Can you do that?
They did it, and so can you!
Even if you have no experience with Robotics, we will guide you through everything from the first principles. Starting slowly, then building on what you learn, you’ll soon have a solid working knowledge of Arduino.
We make learning robotics easy and fun by leading you step-by-step through the process of creating projects.
We have good news for you!
After this learning experience, you will have the power to create your project and you can participate in international robotics competitions!
Also, we have a present for you! A signed Arduino project book from the author.
Not finished yet? There will be lots of great evening activities and after-classes for you!
Yonca Kurt is the founder of Tech Study UK.
In 2017, she and her students represented Turkey in the Canada Wide Science Fair. Two projects were completed which won two gold medals.
In 2019, she and her students again represented Turkey in the International RoboRAVE Competition in Poland, delivering a robotics project from which a third gold medal was achieved.
In 2017 and 2020, she was selected among the most successful female educators of the year in the Women’s Leaders of Technology Competition organized by Microsoft.
She attended programming training organized by Stanford University in 2014 and 2015.
She provides APCS-A, APCS-P, GCSE, A-Level Computer Science preparation lessons. She is also an official IB Teacher. She has taken part in an official IB trainer session in Berlin, in 2020.
Additionally, she provides private coding lessons to high school students and university students and she has private students from all over the world.
From the USA: Boston University, Northeastern University, Tufts University, and more…
From the UK: UCL, Imperial College London, Royal Holloway University, University of Surrey, Nottingham Trend University.
From Germany: Ludwig Maximillian’s University
Besides that, she provides private coding lessons to high school students studying in different countries from the UK, USA, Spain, Sweden, Germany, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, and more.
She has published four books, inspiring Students and Teachers alike. She published the Coding and Robotics books , “Maker Educator with Projects” and “Maker Student Education with Projects” and also a further two books to help teachers with distance learning, “Distance Education Must” and “Google Passwords in Education”.
Yonca Kurt, who provides training and mentorship to both teachers and students in the fields of Maker, robotics, and programming, has been an expert for many years on how technology education is delivered and has developed curriculums for several age groups. Within the scope of the academy, of which she is the founder, she took the Maker Trainer training further and started the Advanced Maker Training. Again, she developed the Raspberry Pi & Python Physical Programming Instructor Training program for the first time in Turkey and took the training to the next level. Besides her coding training, she provides technology training consultancy to leading institutions in the sector and system installation consultancy for maker & robotics workshops.
