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.
During Semester 1, learners will join the live Academy lessons where our subject expert will guide learners through the fundamentals of Robotics before assisting learners in their journey toward building their very own Autonomous line following car.
During Semester 2, learners will join the live Academy lessons where our subject expert will guide learners through building an Access control system. Following this, at the end of the year, learners will be introduced to their surprise Robotics project!
Through the Academy, learners will have access to pre-recorded video lessons to guide them through Python game development. They will be able to approach their educator for monthly code reviews should they wish to pursue this learning area in their own time.
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.
