Implementation of KILT’s initiatives is backed by the principals, assisted by volunteers and supported by donor funding.
KILTs LEGO Robotics Project aims to promote the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in high school learners.
Learners are provided the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts from mathematics, science and technology to a functioning robot.
This type of practical application is an important skill in all the STEM subjects. Working on these tasks inspires learners’ natural curiosity and promotes critical thinking, team-building skills and creativity.
These essential human abilities are 21st century skills needed to prepare learners for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
“There is a secret weapon behind all of it, which is expressing skills – programming, building, teamwork, self-conﬁdence. Some of us did not know we could be good at such things. But now we have found out more about ourselves, and of course, we would like to take these skills further.”
