Alkimos Baptist College principal Kieran Graham said the specialist program would start in 2016 for Year 7 and 8 students.
�This program will allow students the chance to delving completely into the world of robotics, including construction, design, programming, circuitry and electronics,� he said.
�One of the focuses of the program is to encourage young girls to be interested in robotics as well as engineering.

The four-year program will include six periods of robotics a week during school hours, and students will be selected based on an interview with the principal and a selection test in term four.
