Robotics is a multi-disciplinary subject, requiring students to apply knowledge from many areas of study.
At Saint Maur, we recognize the call for more students to begin learning robotics at a younger age so they are more prepared for learning that will occur in future years. Moreover, robotics serves as a supplement to mathematics, science, and technology, as well as an introduction to engineering that will foster continued development in these core areas.
In 2011, Saint Maur opened a new state-of-the-art Science Center, which houses a robotics laboratory and workspace. Through partnerships and collaboration with Lego & National Instruments, our robotics program continues to develop and expand.
Beginning in Grade 3, Saint Maur students are able to learn basic robotics and programming skills. Students can develop their skills and compete in the Yokohama Jr. Robot Tournament and Robo Sumo Friendly. Students can also participate in the First Lego League, an international competition to solve real world problems through robotics.
Beginning in Grade 7, students are able to study more advanced topics, such as Robotics Engineering, VEX, ROBOTC, LabVIEW, and Computer Science. Saint Maur also coordinates & hosts annual friendly competitions around these subject areas.
