This course is very good and can teach you coding, building while you can have a lot of fun. You can also have great fun in competitions, and challenge yourself to do better, to push yourself, and to strive. This is also for us to be ready for the future as in 2050, technology will be far more advanced as now.” David C., Barker College, Year 7

Thank you very much for running the FlipRobot course. I was so surprised at how much Sophia enjoyed it. She loved the challenge and learning something new.” Ms. Katherine W., Parent, Marist Sisters College Woolwich.

The Importance of STEAM and Robotics Learning

In the next 30 years, 75% of the fastest-growing professions will require STEAM-related skills. To successfully navigate through the fast-changing environment, students today need to master STEAM skills as well as a range of critical survival skills (sometimes called ‘soft’ skills).

The global trend of embracing robotics learning to implement STEAM education has been proven to be very successful. Robotics learning consists of five pivotal areas: construct, control, interact, kinetic energy and artificial intelligence. Robotics learning is rich with multidisciplinary principles and is a hands-on way of developing students’ critical skills, such as problem-solving and critical thinking.
