Ustar Robotics Lab

Our Robotics curriculum has always adhered to the teaching philosophy of Inverse Engineering, cultivating children’s ability to observe engineering structures, leading them to explore the entire engineer design process. Our teaching revolves around practical robot application knowledge that children can encounter in real life, using interesting projects as a bridge to foster children’s passion for robots. Through peer interaction and play-based learning (PBL) methods, we maintain children’s interest and enthusiasm for robotics.

In conjunction with professional learning, combined with the unique activities of the robotics club, children use their creative thinking and hands to shape their future robotics community, becoming masters of the community. Together with the club and the children, we empower the community with robotics.
