Happenings @ Nullspace Centre for Robotics Learning
Robotics Certificate Programme – Curriculum Update
Did you know that the Robotics Certificate Programme is our longest running course in Nullspace? This was the first course that we ran since Nullspace Centre for Robotics Learning was founded in 2013. Back then we started with LEGO Mindstorms NXT, followed by LEGO Mindstorms EV3 in 2015, and now we are using the LEGO Education SPIKE Prime!
Regardless of the platform, our goal with this programme has always been to teach students problem solving skills through mechanical design of the robot and coding of various algorithms to solve missions. As our most popular programme leading to competitive robotics training, we are constantly refining our course material to ensure high impact delivery of important skillsets.
Since Dec 2022 we have launched our own workbooks to do just that. Having the workbook ensures that any student will be able to refer to detailed program examples and mission scenarios that will be covered over the course of the programme. Students will also be able to read ahead to find out what activities will be covered in the subsequent training sessions.
With the launch of the workbooks,we will also have to make some changes to the way we conduct our proficiency tests. Previously the tests are conducted in an open-book format; students may refer to any hardcopy notes or worksheets that they may have. However with the current workbooks and all its program snippets, our tests will no longer be open-book for the simple reason that we do not want our students to be overly reliant on the book for all their answers. We want our students to be critical thinkers and adept problem solvers who can evaluate a robot mission and consider the various ways to solve it. We hope the closed-book format will provide an honest feedback about the skills proficiency of the students who attempted the test
