Welcome to Binary School

We present viable cost effective curriculum solutions for schools wanting to run Robotics and Computer Science. Our unique Narrative Based Learning approach is a strong driving force to effect the thinking processes of children. Teaching not ‘What to think” but instead “How to think”.

Narrative Based Learning

Our unique Narrative Based Learning approach:

Follow Kobe the Robotic tortoise on a mission to save the Rhino from a group of hardened poachers. Or use the Compella spy kit to get yourself out of tough situations while uncovering a corrupt CIA plot. The narrative we weave into our lessons challenges kids with problems in a way that keeps them captivated and engaged.

Robotics help to develop

  • Critical and logical thinking.
  • Creative thinking for problem solving skills
  • Engineering and design concepts
  • Programming skills
  • Scientific and Mathematical skills
  • Collaboration through team work

About

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) come together no more than in Robotics. The LEGO Education Kits for various ages give children a solid backing for real world challenges and solutions while having fun.

Our Objectives

Binary School subscribes to the belief that learning should take place through construction rather than instruction. Involving teachers and learners in fun and engaging activities,  LEGO Education products and our own Arduino Based Robots, we allow for an environment where an understanding of technological concepts is easily achieved. Our teachers are effectively trained to maximise the benefits they, and their learners, can extract through our unique NarrativeBased Learning programs

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” – Albert Einstein

Our objectives are to help students develop important life habits and 21st Century skills, which are relevant to the world we live in now, and which will exist in the future.

Binary School’s belief of focusing on construction rather than on instruction is based on the knowledge that creative problem-solving is the key to equipping learners with the skills needed to face several challenges that lie in their futures. These include competition for quality employment and, on a larger scale, the challenges that South Africa, and indeed the world, face.

“The principal goal of education is to create people who are capable of doing things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done… people who are creative, inventive, who discover.” – Jean Piaget
