Robotics is a weekly specialist program at Roberts McCubbin. It is a hands on, multidisciplinary, collaborative, authentic learning experience designed to provide meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for our students. Robotics fosters teamwork that nurtures creativity and innovation preparing children for a world of increasing technological change. It serves as a vehicle to teach students about Language, Mathematical skills, and Physical Science such as structures, forces, gears, levers, pulleys, sensor control and other simple mechanisms.
Our innovative robotics-based engineering curriculum has a strong programming component, which contains a deliberate progression of programming concepts starting in the Junior school continuing every year to grade 6.
