The Robotics Certificate Programme is created by Nullspace to develop LEGO® Robotics proficiency in children. Using the brand-new LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime robotics kit, students will learn to build and programme robots using various sensors and programming automation.
In each lesson, students will work independently to complete robot missions and learning objectives that will prepare them for the rigours of LEGO® robotics competitions. On completion of this programme, students will be invited to join our Competition Training Programme to represent team Nullspace in national robotics competitions.

Modular Course Progression
There are a total of 6 progressive levels (24 sessions) to complete the Robotics Certificate Programme:
Beginner 1, Beginner 2, Intermediate 1, Intermediate 2, Advanced 1, Advanced 2
Course Proficiency Test with Certification
A Course Proficiency Test is administered after completion of Beginner 2, Intermediate 2 , and Advanced 2 course levels to ascertain suitability for progression. Certificates will be awarded upon successful passing of the proficiency tests.
Competition Training Programme
Nullspace Centre for Robotics Learning (C4RL) takes part in approximately 3 robotics competitions in a year. Students who have completed the Robotics Certificate Programme and have successfully passed the Advanced Proficiency Test will be invited to take part in our competition training programme. Our competition training programmes are typically held on Saturday / Sunday mornings across our training centre locations.
Coming with Robotics Background?
- Students with prior experience with LEGO Robotics (using LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime) can sit for our Generic Proficiency Test to gauge their current skill level. This enables us to better slot them in at a suitable level, so that they will not miss crucial robotic skills.
- The Generic Proficiency Test costs $50 to administer, and covers theory, programming, and hands-on robot construction.
- The Generic Proficiency Test is carried out in an open book format, and students may bring along any notes or materials that they might have.
- Email us to make an appointment.

Jessica has just recently enrolled with C4RL to learn more about coding and robotics. Jessica is 9 years old and has no prior experience in this area.
Jessica registers for Beginner 1 Foundation Session and 3x Beginner Practice Sessions. After the 3rd Beginner Practice Session, Jessica realises that she needs one more session in order to complete the requisite activities hence she registered for the 4th Beginner Practice Session.
Upon completing all the requisite activities for Beginner 1, she proceeds to book the Beginner 2 Foundation Session.
Following which Jessica registers for 3x Beginner Practice Sessions for Beginner 2 and was able to finish all the requisite activities within 3x Practice Sessions.
Jessica registers for the Beginner Proficiency Test and managed to pass the assessment. She then proceeds to register for the Intermediate Foundation Session.
Matthew is 11 years old and he has been part of his school’s robotics club for 1 year. He will like to learn more about LEGO Robotics with C4RL. Matthew sat for the Generic Proficiency Test to ascertain his current skill level. Based on the test it was determined that Matthew can start from the Beginner 2 course level.
Matthew registers for the Beginner 2 Foundation Session and 3x Beginner Practice Sessions. However he was able to complete the requisite activities in 2x Beginner Practice Sessions. The unused Practice Session is credited back to Matthew.
Matthew passed the Beginner Proficiency test on his first try and proceeds to the Intermediate course level.
Jayden completed his required activities for Intermediate 2 course and registers for the Intermediate Proficiency Test. He did not manage to pass the test on his first attempt. Based on his test performance, it is recommended that he go through some course activities again to reinforce certain skills before attempting the test again.
Jayden manages to pass the test on his second attempt and proceeds to register for the Advanced 1 Foundation Session.
