APPLIED LEARNING PROGRAMME
The School’s Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in “Computational Thinking through Robotics” will provide learning opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics and to solve real-world problems. This programme is aligned to Singapore’s initiative to build a Smart Nation and helps better prepare our students for the future economy.
The outcomes of the ALP are aligned with the Kent Ridgean Outcomes of a Passionate Learner and have a central focus of the development of students’ computational thinking skills. The desired outcomes are to enable Kent Ridgeans to
- work well with peers in a respectful manner to share responsibilities and make sound decisions to present robotics-related solutions;
- apply computational thinking skills, creative and inquisitive competencies in the understanding and solving real-world robotics-related issues; and
- display adaptability and resilience in the face of challenges when working in teams on robotics tasks.
To enhance our capacity to create meaningful and enriching learning opportunities for our students, Kent Ridge Secondary School has been partnering with the Science Centre Singapore as well as the Ministry of Education.
Specialised programmes are also extended to students with passion and higher ability through our school’s Co-Curricular Activity – InfoComm Club (Robotics), to further develop the students’ skills and competencies and apply them in identified local and overseas competitions.
