Did you know that Warwick SHS has four after school student clubs? Joining a student club is an excellent way to make new friends from other peer groups and to have a great time hanging out with students who share similar interests. It is a also an opportunity for students to enhance their sense of connection and belonging at school and to develop new skills and passions. Best of all – it’s fun!
* Clubs are listed in order of the day that they occur (Mon to Fri).
The Robotics Club aims to give students the opportunity to design, build and program robots using the Lego EV3 Mindstorm kits and software, Arduino kits and software and also the laser and plasma cutters in the Design & Technology Department. No previous experience is necessary to join the club as groups will work on different projects depending on their knowledge and skills in the area.
The club also allows students to enter the Robocup competition, an opportunity to design, build and program robots for the competition. Robocup is an annual project-orientated robotics competition and educational initiative for WA students and mentors. It’s also great fun! Teams are invited to come up with their own solutions to the challenges set, with competition winners progressing to compete on national and even international levels.
