School Camp Incursions Junior / Middle / Seniors

Description

Light the fuse for your students by exposing them to one of our numerous hands on physical, personal and social learning challenges.

The interdisciplinary learning tasks given to students are specific scenarios (as formulated with the teacher) and have the students working in teams designing, evaluting and creating robots to carry out the specific tasks
eg. rescue robots for hurricane affected towns or sports athletes like basketballers and golfers.

Requirements are

1) A Large open area (Ideally no chairs and tables)

2) White Board. Certificates are available for students if required.

For 9am start we require access to the area the night before to set up. Approx time to set up is 1 hour.

Two presenters assist students in challenges. Students do not take anything home. Cameras are allowed, if permitted by the school, for students to take pictures of their creations.

For costing please contact us so that we can provide a quotation that meets your requirements. For overnight camps we ask for meals for two presenters and a parking location for a motorhome with access to a 240v power supply. At the end of the session a demonstration competition will take place.

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.
