This program emphasises logic and algorithmic thinking, requiring students to write a clear set of instructions for their robot using a block-based programming language.

In this hands-on workshop, students learn how the inputs of a robot control what it senses about the world around it, while the outputs control its movement or response.

Students develop STEM skills such as problem solving, creativity and innovation as they code, debug and collaborate to achieve a motivating end-goal.
