Asia Math Engineering Challenge (AMEC) 2016

Date: 7 to 11 June 2016

Learn Robotics Programming!

No prior knowledge required!

Fun and friendship through robotics competition!

AMEC encompasses robotics competition, science-related field trips, as well as inspiring presentations by robotics experts.  The robotics competition encourages participants to design and conceive innovative solutions to challenging tasks that will only be revealed during the competition. Students are expected to work in a team to accomplish the tasks in a specific timeframe.  AMEC will provide students with opportunities to develop their creative thinking ability and problem solving skills, as well as teamwork. Robotics Workshop and Competition is powered by NullSpace (YA’s value partner), a Singapore based company which has been conducting robotics, science and enrichment programmes for Singapore Schools under Ministry of Education.
