Program a Robot

   

Description

Students are encouraged to work in pairs but are able to work individually if desired. If you want your students to problem solve, demonstrate persistence, work enthusiastically and be thoroughly absorbed in achieving their set task, then Program A Robot is the perfect incursion for your class/school!
Students develop their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving skills while working collaboratively in a team situation. The students will use a partially built Vex iq platform and bring it to life using Drop and drag Robot C Programming. Then if time permits they will be able to modify the structure and program to improve its performance.

Each session consists of 20 to 30 students ie class size. The minimum session time 90 minutes, half day, full day, once a week, term or year. Our flexibility enables us to fit in with the requirements of individual schools.

All workshops are charged per student per hour and GST can be claimed back. Additional costs may apply depending on the workshop. For most incursions we travel in a motorhome and provide all the equipment, a surcharge may apply for large travel distances. This surcharge can be avoided by networking with other schools in your region and involving them so that we can stay in an area for a longer period of time. Minimum charges apply for all incursions.
