Students call for inclusion of Robotics in Lagos School Curriculum



Students in Lagos State on Sunday called for the inclusion of Robotics in the school curriculum at primary and secondary levels for technological advancement and innovations.

The students spoke at separate interviews after participating in the Robotics competition organised in the five divisions of the state, as part of the inauguration activities for the second term of Governor Babajide Sanwo-olu, coming up on May 29.

The students said that including Robotics Science into their school curriculum would further develop technological skills set of the younger population.

They are confident that investment in this ecosystem would build the science and technology space of the state and Nigeria at large.

Miss Joe Halimat, a representative of the CMS Girls Senior Grammar school, said that it had become imperative for the government to give priority to Robotics studies in schools as they do to Sports and Entertainment.

Halimat, whose school came second in the competition explained that building a robot for traffic management has taught her perseverance and tolerance which has changed her way of life.

At the end of the competition, Eva-Adelaja Girls Junior Secondary school Bariga came first with the cash prize of N100,000 while CMS Grammar School Girls Senior came 2nd with N50,000 compensation while Igbokuta Community Senior Model College, received the 3rd position, with N30,000.

Head of Department, Co-curriculum for Science and Technology, Education District 2, Mrs Amaka Oto advised students to brace up with technological advancement and acquire more knowledge in line with the THEMES agenda of the Governor Sanwo-olu’s administration.

Also speaking at the event in Ikeja Division, the state’s Commissioner for Education, Folasade Adefisayo stated that Sanwo-Olu deserved a second term in office to enable a greater Lagos Rising Agenda based on his developmental projects in all sectors.
