Robotics Mechanical Movement

Type: School Incursion

If you like this online resource, please remember to mention Cursions!

Description

A range of innovative hands on incursions to stimulate students into the exciting new world of robotics. Robotic Movement, simple machines, wheels and gears, forces and effects, physics and motion, mechanical engineering, energy, levers and pulleys.

The students will use a modular Robtix system that enables the undertaking of Mechanical Movement and principles of science.

We also have the ability due to systems flexibility to develop different grade programs to meet teachers and grade requirements. Examples of programs inlcude: Level Logic, Pulley Power, On The Move, Your Favourite Toy, Your Favourite Material or Structure, Forces and Movement.

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.
