​The Robotics Program of Excellence allows students to experience an interactive course in which they design, build and program their robots. The program is targeted at students who have a keen interest in coding and engineering. Students work predominantly with the LEGO Mindstorm kits. They begin by building a basic autonomous mobile robot through which they explore the fundamentals of movement, design and programming. Students later learn to program Arduino microcontrollers to tackle real world scenarios. A critical thinking and problem-solving approach to the design process is used.
