The Robotics module covers the main concepts and skills needed to assemble, programme, and control a simple robot.
Robots are not only found in science fiction. Programmable mechanical devices are increasingly used to automate common tasks; for example, in factories and distribution centres.
People will interact more and more with these devices in different environments such as home, school, or healthcare. Early exposure to this technology will help to explain their use as well as open paths to future learning and more specialised skills development.
