Robotic engineering course launched in primary schools

Recently the Department of Education and Training in Ho Chi Minh City held a basic robotic engineering course for primary students in the city.

Speaking at a seminar, Nguyen Quang Vinh, head of the Bureau of Primary Education and Training, said that the course aims to create a playground for primary pupils in addition to sports and cultural activities.

The course is not compulsory. The tuition fee is VND450,000 (US$.....) per student in three months, including 12 periods each 2 hours. The tuition is not a big sum for urban students but their rural peers.
After the basic course, those who love robotic engineering can continue pursuing the knowledge of the field.

However, as the course is new model, just a few schools launched it. Lac Long Quan Primary School in District 11 opened the course with 150 participants.
