Code for Fun
In this 21st century, scientific and technological innovations pervade the world as we face the benefits and challenges of globalisation and a knowledge-based economy. To keep abreast of things, students need to develop their abilities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), thus explaining the importance of STEM education in Singapore.
BPGHS provides the opportunity and platform for all Secondary One students to be exposed to various forms of coding and robotics to instil in them problem solving skills and creativity. Students begin with using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 System to learn the fundamentals of good robot construction and programming in Term 1.
In Term 2, they then move on to explore the concepts of drone flight mechanism and application of drone technology in daily life and in the real world, through fun and experiential learning techniques.
In Semester 2, students will focus on using the Audrino, which is an open-source electronic prototyping platform, enabling users to create interactive electronic objects for solving problems in a real world context.
Through this exposure, the school aims to foster inquiring minds, logical reasoning and collaboration skills in our BPians.
