Robotics Certificate Programme

using LEGO®  Mindstorms EV3

About LEGO Robotics Certificate Programme

LEGO robotics is a fun and easy way for children to learn programming logic and robot construction skills.

This course is based on the LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 System. Each student will be provided with a laptop and EV3 set during the class. Students will be given the chance to learn by doing and to explore different ways of building and programming robots to enhance their creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

Course Progression

lego robotics certificate programme course progression

Flexible Modular System

+ Modular system allows students to progress at their own pace!

+ Recommended 6-7 lessons per level. Students may choose to slow down or speed up progress as necessary.

Course Fee

+RM105 per 1.5h lesson

+Purchase a lesson package to enjoy savings of up to RM620!

Evaluation Test with Certificate

+ A test is conducted at the end of Beginner 2, Intermediate 2, and Advanced 2 level to determine if your child has mastered the skills necessary to continue to the next level.

+ The test covers theory, programming, and robot building covered during the level. The test will be conducted on the last lesson.

+ Certificates will be awarded upon successful passing of the evaluation test.

 Coming with Robotics Background?

+ Students with prior experience with LEGO Mindstorms robotics can sit for our generic evaluation test to gauge their current level of proficiency. This enables us to better slot them in at a suitable level, so that they will not miss crucial robotic skills.

+ The evaluation test costs RM 100 to administer, and covers theory, programming, and hands-on robot construction.

+ The evaluation test is carried out in an open book format, and students may bring along any notes or books into the test.
