Uninspiring computer science lessons is hampering our youngsters to embark on meaningful ICT or computer science careers, however, increasing the availability of tools like robots for young students to learn about programming and coding significantly broadens their perspectives of technology and careers. We use robots as an innovative way to teach and encourage secondary school students to take up computer science at a young age. The ‘adopt a bot’ training also seeks to develop ways for each student to own (adopt) their own robot to help with self-paced learning on how to code. We are leverage our CTIP and Girls in ICT projects to create awareness in government to this method of instruction with a view to its wider adoption to ensure secondary school students, particularly girls, are encouraged to learn programming skills and other skills relevant to today’s increasingly digitalised world.
