Danny Yu
Beijing World Youth Academy

Danny teaches MYP Design robotic engineering at Beijing World Youth Academy (BWYA). Danny’s background is in electrical engineering, major in communication. As a senior engineer, Danny has worked in the high-tech industry in Canada for over ten years, specializing in cellular telecommunication, and was instrumental in designing Bell Mobility’s cellular network across Canada. Owing to his engineering background, Danny has taught many high school subjects including computer engineering, statistics, physics, general science, technology, ITGS, and mathematics. Currently, Danny is working on integrating robotics into the school’s curriculum via STEAM. Also, Danny is a member of the ACAMIS Robotics Planning Committee. 


EV3 vs Spike Prime
Since EV3 has been discontinued and its replacement Lego 51515 is quite similar to the Spike Prime that was released slightly earlier. People often are confused about which option they should take. At the same time, most schools still have lots of EV3. So, what should they do? Should they keep using EV3 or buy its replacement? This workshop is to explain their similarities and differences based on their hardware and software so that they could make an informed decision. There will be a demonstration of an EV3 and a Spike Prime robot for the audience to see their differences.


Integrating Robotics in MYP
This workshop is about how to integrate robotics into the MYP Design curriculum. Since all MYP Design projects require MYP Design Cycle to create a product, this workshop will share ideas on how to design lessons, assessments, and evaluations that comply with the Design Cycle criteria: Inquiring and analyzing, Developing ideas, Creating the solution, and Evaluating. All examples and documents used in this workshop have been tested to be workable. The audience can ask questions at any point and can share their ideas.
