It's increasingly recognized that extra-curricular robotics clubs can greatly improve students' engagement with STEM subjects. The hands-on experience of learning to design, build and program robots of increasing complexity can greatly boost students' teamwork and problem-solving abilities, while helping them to learn how abstract concepts of mathematics, engineering and computing actually work in practice. If our students get involved in robotics on a competitive level, they will encounter a whole new arena of exciting creative and practical challenges.
