Joining an after school 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).
A large part of the Robotics Club is aimed at preparing students to enter the State RoboCup event in August. There is also a regional event that leads to the state event, usually in June. RoboCup is a project orientated competition designed to encompass all of the STEAM skills. RoboCup encourages sportsmanship, sharing, teamwork and organisational skills to build and program robots to carry out specific tasks autonomously.
There are 4 different challenges on offer – OnStage, Rescue, Maze and Soccer.
Robotics Club is also available for students who just want to learn about building and programming robots to perform different tasks.
Its hoped that in Semester 2, students will have the opportunity to experiment and build robots of their own design.
