 Availability
Students will participate in a challenge that involves some construction and programming of robots to complete tasks around a Lego challenge map. This program covers key areas in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM).
Students will utlilise problemsolving and collaborative skills as they design, build and program Lego robots. The robots perform specific tasks using motors and sensors to solve problems on the Lego challenge map.
Students will experiment with speed, distance and measurement, as they develop their critical thinking skills and hone the ability to predict and draw conclusions.
This program epitomises handson STEM education.
