Coding and Robotics Career Path

Are you considering a career in robotics? You've come to the right place! Start as early as age eleven and embark on a lifetime of exciting opportunities.

This career path is designed to give students an early introduction to the fascinating world of robotics.  Begin with basic block coding using drones and gradually advance to complex Python and JavaScript programming with the Go1 quadruped robot.  The learning journey utilises simulators for practice, but students can also purchase various hardware components for a more hands-on and enriching experience.  The courses are structured progressively to ensure a steady build-up of knowledge and skills.
