About Us

Description

Robotic Education ROBOTS COME TO YOU is an exciting and unique series of hands on incursions that can be tailored to meet your school/class requirements. The real world challenges engage students to design, create, evaluate, modify, test and demonstrate the way their robots
achieve the set task, whether it be creating an athlete robot, a recycle robot or a mathematical robot. 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 ROBOTS COME TO YOU 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.

Each session consists of 20 to 30 students ie class size. The minimum session time is 60 minutes and possible options are 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.

For most incursions we travel in a motorhome and provide all the equipment A surcharge may apply for country and intertstate travel.. 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.

    Additional information

    Our requirements?

    A ground floor class room to be used for all classes. It is important the same room is used because transporting all the equipment between sessions is impractical. Access to the room one hour before and after the session for preparation and packing up. Tables and chairs are not needed.

    We travel in a self sufficient motor home. If possible, parking and staying on school grounds would be greatly appreciated. We generally arrive the day before an incursion so this includes the night before the incursion is run. It is a 23 foot long motor-home and we carry up to 20 fifty five litre boxes full of equipment. For this reason parking closer to the room where the session will be run is best, however please keep the size of the motor-home in mind.
