Robotics and New Media Club

Robotics/New Media Club
CCA Information: Frontier Primary School adopts a tiered approach in the delivery of lessons for Robotics. Robotics is progressive in nature with each tier undergirded by a specific focus and students’ participation. With the strong foundation laid in Tier 1, students can progress to Tier 2 and 3 to extend their learning to be creative problem-solvers.

New Media includes the development of digital skills in photography and videography. This extends the learning beyond Robotics where students are given opportunities to apply the skills learnt. They will enhance their creativity and confidence via different media platforms.
