High School Engineering Program

Why High School Engineering Program?
  • Learn the fundamentals of engineering
  • Learn and gain practical hands-on experience with ‘industry’ standard design, mechanical, electronics, and software design processes and tools
  • Apply the learning immediately to solve a practical engineering challenge
  • Develop life skills such as leadership, collaboration, problem-solving, project/time management, strategy, etc
What is High School Engineering Program?

This program will see students working with “industry-standard” and “real” mechanical, electronics, and software components to design, build, and program their robot. Students will learn and work with metal chassis, drive trains, timing-belts, sensors, and real tools such as screw-drivers, allen keys, spanners, wrench, pliers, etc. to construct their own robot. In addition, students will also learn electronic control systems to power their mechanical robot as well as coding to make it all work. It goes without saying that students will also learn soft-skills such as leadership, collaboration, problem solving, project/time management, strategy, etc. While all students will learn the basics of mechanical, electronics, and software programming to begin with, students will have the option to specialise in one of these areas depending on their interest.

 

This program provides a pathway for interested students to participate in the FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC) program.

In addition to learning the technical and soft skills, students will participate in a range of entrepreneurial activities to promote their FTC team activities including documenting, marketing, fundraising, multimedia production/editing, etc.
