Though the Fellowship Baptist College-Electronics Communication Engineering Team reigned supreme in the end, CHMSC hails its four-team attempt as a victory for the school’s drive for Outcomes-based Education.
Learning through competing is a good indicator of OBE because the students themselves build their robots and program them to do a wide array of movements and functions, clearly illustrating that the students can indeed do what they were taught to do through classroom instruction.
The school has recently purchased Roborobo kits for use in the technological advancement of its Information Technology, Information Systems, and Industrial Technology major in Computer Technology programs.
Additional Roborobo kits have been requested for procurement to ensure the vitality of the technology programs in all of the CHMSC campuses.
With more exploration in the field of Robotics this year, the school sets out to win a top-spot finish the next opportunity that comes along.
