CLUB MOTTO

The club motto is ‘Intelligence and Virtue – Character Precedes Success’

In striving for success, we must remember that success is a product of good values and character. This encompasses hard work, determination, resilience, believe and hope and a whole range of attitudes.

Members are expected to have confidence in themselves and internalize good character.

This is very much in line with the school’s motto and objective: ‘Wisdom and Grace’

OBJECTIVE

- To groom members into technology enthusiasts who are intelligent and virtuous

TRAINING

Mission Robotics

  • Members training for this type of competition focuses on being efficient programmers and robot designers
  • The competitions these members are exposed to centres around points gained by teams if their robot manages to achieve doing tasks and sub-tasks
  • Teams with the highest points gained by the end of the competition, wins
  • Often, there is a research and presentation element where teams have to research on a theme that is usually based on technology and issues pertaining to the environment and innovation
  • Teams present their findings to a small group of judges

Applied Robotics

  • Members training for this type of competition focuses on being able to design and program robots that are able to address or overcome problems and issues pertaining a specific area in life and human endeavor.
  • Robots are supposed to be more creative
  • Teams are supposed to either present to a group of judges or the general audience and public or a combination of both.
  • Teams are given points by the judges or votes by the audience; teams with the highest points wins

P2 SELECTION PROCESS (OFFICIAL RECRUITMENT)

Step 2

  • Form teachers are consulted for their opinions and advice.

Step 3

  • Shorlisted pupils are asked to come to the P2 Robotics program (AIS program)
  • During sessions, pupils are exposed to:
    • Awareness of robotics as a technology field
    • Awareness of club activities
    • Induction to expectations within the club if they are interested to stay in the long run
    • Induction to research, group work and presentation
    • Induction to mission robotics
    • Induction to applied robotics

  • They may also form makeshift teams with existing primary school members and take part in competitions that have a flexible age restriction
  • They come back as mentors, to guide existing members who are taking part in competitions.
  • Since they have gone through 5 years of robotics training, they have a better awareness of the teachers’ requirements and are a source of invaluable help to staff.
  • They complement training by instructors by guiding members in problem solving skills and rehearsing their presentations for competitions.
  • They stand to gain CIP points for themselves.
