12th National Robotics Programming Competition (NRPC) 2018

INTRODUCTION


“NRPC” has been a household name amongst schools since 2007. In 2016, in her 10th Anniversary, the school re-branded NRPC to become National Robotics Programming Competition, ensuring that the focus is on programming in line with Singapore’s SMART Nation initiative.  With this re-branding, this annual event organised by Admiralty Secondary School and partner institute Nanyang Polytechnic aims at challenging young minds by stretching their potential in robotics, including drones, and enhance the learning experience for our participants and promote the culture of thinking, innovation and collaboration in problem-solving.  



OBJECTIVES


  • To engage students through a fun-filled learning experience. 
  • To provide a platform for students to express themselves in the area of critical and inventive thinking through collaboration. 
  • To explore the use of technology as a tool for creativity and innovation in problem-solving.
  • To involve parents as partners to nurture our young to discover interests and talent
