STEM Club provides opportunities for students to work on engineering-related activities as well as robotics using Lego WeDo 2.0 and Lego SPIKE. The students work collaboratively to build robots and acquire programming skills. These activities develop students’ creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills. It also builds their enthusiasm and stimulate their interest in STEM learning.
Students learn to build robots ranging from a simple car to complex machineries that can navigate through a maze. They use the engineering design process cycle to explore and try out new ideas. Students work together as a team to evaluate and improve upon their own designs, imbuing in them the virtues of resilience and collaboration. “We work in teams to build different robots every week and code them to move. Together, we can do it!” said Judith, a Primary 4 student excitedly.
Students participate in school and external competitions such as National Robotics Competitions, Amazing Flying Competition as well as National Flying Simulation Competition. Our Primary 5 student, Yuan Xiang said, “We share our ideas to help one another improve our design. We strive to win and do our best for the competitions.” Values such as resilience, respect, determination and self-discipline are displayed by our students.
