What makes your centre’s program different from robotics courses offered at other places?
For a start, our class sizes are much smaller at 2 to 5 children (max 5) with each of them having their own robotics kit and laptop to work with, and we try to group children of the same age together. This allows children to have more freedom to ask questions and learn at their own pace. Secondly, program is mission/problem solving focused. This encourages children to explore different ideas in designing and programming their robot. This is in contrast to many centres which prints out a set of construction manual for children to follow. We also use real past year competition playfields as a platform to practice their mission solving skills. Lastly, all our instructors are experienced school robotics instructors, providing enrichment and competition training to MOE schools. Many of us represented our own schools in national and international robotics competitions when we were students ourselves.
What is the minimum age to sign up for you robotics courses?
Our Robotics courses using the LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 platform are suitable for students aged 8 years and above. The Arduino Inventor courses are suitable for students aged 10 years and above. While these are the recommended age; it depends a lot on the interest of the individual child. As far as possible, we group children of the same age range together (e.g. 8 to 10, 11 to 13).
How large (number of children) is each class?
2 to 5 children per class, with each child working on 1 robotics set and laptop each. This allows our instructors to provide specialised attention to every child’s learning progress.
How do I find out if a class is available?
You can contact us through email or by phone.
My child needs to be away, or is sick during one of the sessions. What happens then?
It is vital that you do not sign up for classes that you will not be able to attend. However for extenuating circumstances (e.g. child is sick), we will try to arrange a make up class for your child so that he/she can proceed with the program.
How do I do the registration and payment?
You can do the registration online (https://my.nullspacegroup.com/course-registration/) or in person at our centre. We accept cash, cheque, and bank funds transfer. However, our centre is only opened at specific class timings and an appointment can be arranged for you to visit our centre. Do contact us for more information or to check out if a course timing is available.
Do you offer trial lessons?
No. But parents and children are free to drop by the centre to find out more about our lessons. Do call to check for suitable timings for visits as our centre is only opened during specific class timings.
Do you conduct birthday parties or other corporate events?
Yes, you can contact us with your requirements so that our team can put together a specially-customised program to suit your needs.
