RoboCoast Immersion Day – Cooran
April 28 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
RoboCoast and the University of the Sunshine Coast would like to invite you to take part in an exciting opportunity to develop student and teacher’s skills in Block coding LEGO EV3, Spike Prime and mBot Ranger robots. This Immersion day is free for schools to attend and is aimed at school groups wishing to develop their robotics program or club. The event is open for students in Years 4 – 9 and schools may bring a maximum of 20 students.
At the Immersion day, students will be working in teams of two and will need 1 x robot, 1 x USB cable and 1 x laptop per team. If your school does not have all the equipment required, we are able to bring equipment for you to loan for the day. During the event students will work in pairs and learn how to code their robots for three different challenges.
Immersion Days are designed to train rookie teams up to a standard so that they can compete in the RoboRAVE Australia International competition at the USC stadium at Sippy Downs on Sunday 17th July 2022. At the end of the day, schools will be provided with a Sumo board and line follow mat to take back to their school to continue your robotics journey and prepare for competition.
The day has been hosted by Kath Facer from Cooran State School and their tuckshop will be open.
