Overview of Robotics DSA Prep Course:
Prerequisite for Young Engineers Robotics Program:
11 - 15 year olds
Finished Young Engineers RoboBricks Program with certification
Rationale for the way Young Engineers Robotics DSA Prep Course is structured
Most schools which offers DSA through Robotics require a good portfolio to demonstrate competency. Hence participants must finish our Young Engineers Robotics Program in order to qualify as there are enough lessons and models in the program for us to do up the portfolio. Furthermore the certification of completion also helps in the DSA application. Participation in National and recognised Robotics competition is a must for DSA application. Hence FLL is a must. Finally, we also focused on helping the student be confident in their presentation and interview skills as some schools also require an interview for DSA.
