Oakview Preparatory School will introduce into its school curriculum the STEM Logo Robotics program. The program will be part of the grades six (6) to eight (8) curriculum.
The aim is to equip our students with the technology necessary at this level so they can be prepared to advance as "tomorrow’s creative problem-solvers". The STEM Lego Robotics program will provide the students participating in the program with the foundational STEM knowledge and skills needed to become innovative and imaginative thinkers.
"LEGO® Education helps make abstract STEM concepts tangible by taking teaching out of the textbooks and putting it into the hands of our students. Doing so creates a better understanding of STEM subjects while building 21st-century skills."
We anticipate the demand for this course will be high when it is launched. We advise those parents interested in enrolling their child/children to enroll as soon as enrollment opens.
