The world is on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work and relate to each other. The arrival of the fourth industrial revolution has increased the speed of the current breakthroughs exponentially. Learners often struggle to understand how the theory they learn applies to their everyday lives – The Robotics Academy teaches vital skills like critical thinking and complex problem-solving, which can be used in real life. This ability to apply theory into reality is the most critical skill to master in order to be effective in addressing the demands of the modern age.
Despite being a vital skill set to learn, the subject of Robotics is not included within regular subject choices. Through our Academy+ learners are able to follow the Robotics syllabus provided by Resolute Robotics.
Module 1 – Engineering – Autonomous Line Following car.
During Semester 1, learners will join the live Academy lessons where our subject expert will guide learners through building their very own Autonomous line following car.
Module 2 – Engineering – Access Control Using RFID Tags.
Through the Academy learners will have access to pre-recorded video lessons to guide them through building an Access control system. Learners complete this during the mid-year break.
Module 3 – Computer Sciences & Data Analytics with Game Development.
During Semester 2, learners will join the live Academy lessons where our subject expert will guide learners through Python game development.
Our Robotics Academy teaching is done via online live lessons which are held weekly for each grade. In each lesson, learners will be guided by their Robotics Academy educator as well as a technical support team member.
Our Robotics Academy will have two lessons each week. Both lessons during the week will be exactly the same, providing you with options which work. Should you miss a lesson, all lessons are recorded and made available to our learners.
