Roving robot show for north Queensland students
North Queensland students will be taking charge of robots when the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA) brings its popular robotics workshops to Collinsville and Scottsville state schools and St Johns Bosco Catholic school students.
The sessions are a continuation of the work QMEA has achieved with the schools throughout the year. Along with the development of the first ever Collinsville robotics competition, the QMEA and Thiess STEM Proud Partnership has grown in strength thanks to assistance from world-class robotics educator, Dr Damien Kee and generous mentoring by Thiess personnel.
St Johns Bosco Principal Eleanor Niland said such hands-on programs were powerful learning tools for students.
“Our students have benefited greatly from these workshops and the valuable interaction with Thiess staff who put a real-world context to their learning,” said Eleanor.
