Today's children are preparing for the new millennium by learning digital skills for the jobs of the future.

Palmerston school students programmed Lego EV3 robots to act and dance in time with music to compete in an international RoboCup competition.

RoboCup encourages young students to learn robotics and programming to build up problem solving and critical thinking skills that are crucial for a digital future, along with traditional sharing, teamwork, cooperation and organisational skills.
