Veritas has a state-of-the-art robotics program as an optional after-school enrichment for our students.
We believe classical education, in teaching students how to think, is ahead of the curve when it comes to preparing our children to be producers of technology rather than passive consumers. The skills of logic and reasoning which apply in computer and robotics programming were first discovered by the ancient Greeks. Logic itself can be expressed as a formal mathematical language. A student who understands the concept of the contrapositive, if-then statements, and logical fallacies requires only a review of contextual syntax to program any machine. At Veritas, we believe technology is not a means of education, it is an end of education, one of many ends that can be successfully pursued with a well-rounded liberal arts foundation.
Through the Lego EV3 curriculum, students will use the same software, powered by National Instruments, used by engineers and programmers in the real world to control everything from the Mars Rover to industrial drones. This video provides an exciting preview of the curriculum.
