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.
