The first ARDUINO EDUCATION CONFERENCE in Singapore was held at the Singapore Science Centre in collaboration with Duck Learning, on 23 and 24 August.

We were honored to have keynote Speaker David Cuartielles, co founder of Arduino share his insights and have an open discussion with educators on the full potential of Arduino Education technologies.

Over 100 participants joined us in this 2 days conference and tried their hands on the different projects using the Arduino Starter Kit. This experience allowed participants to explore the possibilities that Arduino can add into their curriculum and the innovative ways Arduino can be used for various purposes!

Thank you to all participants who joined us in this event and we hope to bring more similar seminars and conferences to you in the near future!

Tech Saturday – KUBO Challenge!



In lieu with this year’s Tech Saturday organized by IMDA Singapore, Duck Learning launched the first KUBO Challenge in Singapore!

Both school and general public teams joined us in this 2 days event and got a hands on experience with the KUBO Robot. The KUBO challenge encourages free tinkering and self-directed learning among young children aged 4 to 10.

This challenge encompasses of a maze with obstacles where students will conceptualize the best way to accomplish the task given with KUBO Robot with a TagTile™ system that provides new ways to learn to code intuitively. 

All the young participants worked with their friends and families to figure out ways to help their KUBO Robot complete the maze. Through trial and error and problem solving they devised different routes that KUBO can take on the maze to overcome obstacles.

All participants walked away with a certificate of participation and the top 3 winners were awarded with cash vouchers from Challenger!

Thank you for all who joined us and we look forward to having more KUBO Challenges coming up in the near future.

Each year, FIRST LEGO League Jr. presents a new and exciting Challenge to ignite the creativity of children age 6 to 10. Each team of up to 5 children begins the exploration of this real-world theme with an exclusive LEGO® Education Inspire Model. Using this model as a starting point, they design a new model of their own with LEGO® elements. As they work, they learn basic engineering and programming skills with LEGO® Education WeDo and apply those concepts to make their model move. Teams also share their journey with a team Show-Me Poster. Throughout their experience, teams operate under the FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, celebrating discovery, teamwork, and Gracious Professionalism®.

A total of 20 teams joined us this season, and we were impressed at the teamwork and diligence that every team displayed. Every individual is a winner at FLL Jr. and we are already looking forward to how these students can use their creativity to tackle future real world themes!


In FIRST LEGO League Jr., every team and team member’s achievements are celebrated!

Innovative Project Work with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 | Educators Experience Workshop

Earlier in February 2018, we hosted a group of educators at our Innovative Project Work with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 | Educators Experience Workshop over at our Innovation Lab by LEGO Education.

45300_env (3)

Project Work is a learning experience which aims to provide students with the opportunity to synthesize knowledge from various areas of learning, and critically and creatively apply it to real-life situations.

Participants discovered how they could develop 21st-century competencies in their students with the right project work and what other schools are doing for their project work.

Objectives of this educators experience workshop

  • Get inspiration and innovative ideas for project work
  • Identify how educators can develop students’ 21st-century competencies with LEGO Education WeDo 2.0
  • Find out what other schools are doing for Project Work
  • Hands-on experience

Using LEGO Education WeDo 2.0, educators were tasked to build a prototype to help alleviate the problems of ocean pollution such as helping to remove the amount of plastic or trash found in the ocean. The groups of educators were given a choice to build one of the three mechanisms to form their prototype.

In this session,  they were introduced to block-based programming used in the software and concluded with the groups presenting their prototype and their solution to the dire problem of ocean pollution.

This was a highly engaging hands-on workshop to allow educators to go through the project work from a student’s perspective.

We would like to thank the participants for taking time from their busy schedule to attend this hands-on workshop. We hope that the session was fruitful for you and gave you more innovative ideas for project work.

National Robotics Competition 2017

The National Junior Robotics Competition is an exciting and unique event organised annually by Science Centre Singapore. This robotics competition encourages students to develop problem solving skills, entrepreneurial skills, creative thinking skills and team spirit among participants. NJRC is about celebrating the process of learning through interactive, meaningful experiences.

Science Centre is pleased to announce the first iteration of the revamped competition “National Robotics Competition” (NRC). The relaunch hoped to reach out to students from all levels in the Education spectrum and to also engage the public on the importance of Robotics and STEM education for our younger generation.

Among the changes are a category for students between 6-8 years of age, a robotic arm hackathon and a category in which science and robotics come together in a very realistic manner!

The competition was held from 4 – 8 Sep 2017 during the September school holidays. Duck Learning also had an interactive booth where we showcased our products and solutions.

Day 1 & 2 of the National Robotics Competition begin with the WRO Primary category with over 120 teams taking part and participants aged between 9 to 12 years old. 

Introduction Primary Category: The mission of the robot is to bring Scientists and Visitors from the Start Area to the Scientist and Visitor Areas (S&V’s). The robot must also move an endangered animal discovered in an S&V to the adjacent rainforest (the green Endangered Species Areas) or to the adjacent ocean (the blue Endangered Species Areas). The mission is completed when the robot is within the Finish Area.

With about 20 teams taking part in the challenge for the first time, we were very excited to debut Duck Learning’s very own Junior Challenge, a mission-based challenge to be completed by a robot built from LEGO Education WeDo 2.0. The Jr. Challenge was debut on the second day of NRC. 

For Day 3 & Day 4 of the National Robotics Competition, teams are from Secondary & Tertiary, competing in the WRO Challenge. The WRO Secondary category had over 120 participating teams and the Tertiary category had close to 30 teams taking part in the challenge. 

Introduction Secondary Category: Greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide, emitted by human activities like transportation, industrial processes, and energy production affect the temperature of our planet. The Challenge is to make a robot that can help one company reach carbon neutrality. To accomplish this, the robot must install renewable energy sources, like solar panels, and plant trees to counterbalance the emissions from the industrial processes of the company.

Introduction Tertiary Category: The demand for electricity is increasing every day. More facilities like wind farms that generate electricity from renewable and clean energy sources are needed. The Challenge is to make a robot that helps to build a wind farm. The robot will select the best places to build the different wind generators of the wind farm in order to ensure maximum efficiency from the generators and no impact on the environment.

The final day of NRC held the WRO Open category, Science Automatica and Robot Arm (Open and Advanced).

Sustainabots [Robots for Sustainability]
For the WRO Open category, the mission this year is to build a robot that makes your region more sustainable in one of the following four goals:

  • Affordable and clean energy
  • Sustainable cities and communities
  • Climate action
  • Life on land

The finale of the National Robotics Competition 2017 was the awards ceremony. The Guest of Honor, Mr. Johan, Managing Director of ABB Singapore and Prof Lim, CE of Science Centre closed this year’s National Robotics Competition 2017.
