RoboClub at St Anthony’s
23 May 2019
St Anthony’s School in Greenmount will showcase its ongoing programs at a special June 7 Robotics Community Session.
The one-hour event also details the evolution of the school’s new Maker Space. In the past few years, the school has embarked on major implementation of robotics and holds three RoboClubs. These include two before-school clubs, one for Year 5-6 students focussing on preparations for the RoboCup Junior and First Lego League competitions.
The other is for Year 3-4 students and tackles basic mind storming coding skills.
A third club meets each Friday at lunch time for all interested students and focusses on RoboSumo wrestling. Competitions are held after lunch in the school’s undercover area.
On June 7, year 5-6 RoboClub students present their entries for RoboCup Junior, explaining the processes of creating a two-minute robot dance using props and costumes made in the new Maker Space. It runs from 5pm to 6pm.
