Robotic Encounters

   

Description

This adventure will take place over two days. The students will travel to a land of their own creation. In this process they will explore, in simulated form, robotic technologies. Through hands on experience of robot functions and by evaluation, they will gain an understanding of artificial intelligence. The students, in the design of their own robots, will use the knowledge gained from each session.

These interdisciplinary learning topics can be modified to meet your school/students requirements. The students are given a specific scenario as discussed with the teacher and have to work in teams designing, evaluating and creating robots to carry out specific tasks eg. Rescue Robots for hurricane effected areas or Sports Athletes getting the longest drive in golf. All materials are provided.

In addition to these we also have a range of innovative thinking and 'maths active learning' programs.

    Costs: 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.
