Coding and robotics have a major role to play in the future of education. Scitech robotics workshops make use of advanced classroom technology, providing instant engagement in STEM and developing creative problem solving skills across multiple curricular areas.
All equipment is provided by Scitech, meaning zero setup time and more time for active learning. By programming their robot’s sensors, students will collaborate to solve real world problems and develop their own logical thinking skills in an engaging, hands-on workshop environment. Students and teachers will also learn how to take their interest further through a range of robotics and coding resources aimed at any budget.
Workshops are available for a variety of year groups and skill levels, from genius programmers down to absolute beginners. Welcome to the exciting world of the robotics... no experience necessary!
Scratch Robotics and Coding | Years 7-10
with MakeBlock mBot
Scratch is a free online programming language designed to help young people get started with coding using a simple drag-and-drop interface. Students will explore how to program their robot's motors and sensors in order to solve a series of challenges, and discover opportunities for creating their own programs and robots using Scratch or Arduino.
Competitive Robotics and Coding | Years 7-10
with Lego Mindstorms EV3
For students planning to enter WA robotics competitions such as RoboCup, this incursion provides everything you need to know to get started. Using Lego EV3 robotics, students will investigate the basics of robot construction, movement and sensors, before applying these skills to a range of practice challenges. For more information on RoboCup, visit robocupjunior.org.au/wa.
|Duration||Per student||Fixed rate|
Fixed rate applies if minimum numbers not met. Prices may vary depending on distance from Scitech.
Scitech provides computers and robots for student use. Equipment is transported in trolleys so ramp or lift access to the venue is essential. The workshop requires desks, chairs and access to electrical power outlets. Students will be required to move around during the workshop, so a large classroom or hall is strongly recommended.
