Junior Engineering and Technology Academy
Age range: Prep to Grade 2 (Book early to avoid disappointment)
Prerequisite: Suitable for students who are able to attend the class independently with a good attitude in the classroom.
The Junior Engineering and Technology Academy is an integrated STEM academy for younger students from Prep to Grade 2, to develop their interests in simple machines, mechanisms and how things work. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths are the focus subjects in the Junior Engineering and Technology Academy. Students will learn Robotics, Coding, Computer Science, Engineering, Architecture and Design through the year with Innovate Technology and Robotics Academy’s wide array of STEM resources and curriculum for Prep to Grade 2s. Junior students will be taught by experienced instructors who have conducted various technology and robotics programs for Australian schools and who have robotics and technology experience from teaching at prestigious schools in Singapore.
Junior students can start their learning with the Junior Engineering and Technology Academy and understand the fundamentals of robotics, coding, electronics and technology before progressing to the technology and robotics programs for middle school students and following the academic pathway for robotics by taking certification exams and participating in robotics competitions when they are older. The Junior Engineering and Technology Academy is a great place to give younger students a head start in STEM subjects and develop their confidence in robotics, coding and handling various types of technology in a safe and fun place.
“The only way to embrace a world which is rapidly changing is to keep on learning new things.”
