Creativity, imagination and problem solving at the heart of robotics

Students in Years 4-6 at Mel Maria Catholic Primary School, Western Australia, learn via project orientated educational robotics.  Learning is open; students work together to deal with problems and find creative imaginative ways to solve them.

The robotics program at Mel Maria culminates in participation in the Robocup competition integrating science, technology and the arts.

At the heart of such a robotics program ICT is the tool that stimulates creative, fluid thinking and develops critical problem solving skills.
