Au Academy is starting a Young Roboticists Program and training students to enter the First Australia Robotics Competition. For more details, please contact us at 02 8407 9550 or e-mail us at [email protected]

Does your child love to build? Does he or she enjoy hands-on activities? Enrol your child in your Young Roboticists Program at Au Academy. We teach students to build their own robots and program them to walk and move in extraordinary ways.

Lego Robotics Hornsby

Program Guide
This course is intended to help students learn the basics of robotics, mainly through creation of robots and programming these creations to run autonomously. Students will learn to understand the logic involved in this process as well as to work together in teams on a focused goal. Students will learn both about engineering robots as well as programming their use in real-world applications.

First, students will use a “graphical programming” software in order to easily create the programs they desire. These robots also allow for text-based programming; however, it is expected that once the students are comfortable with the logic of the robots and what is involved, they will begin to use text-based programming instead.

Lesson Outline
Lessons are two hours long every week, with students working in teams that change each week. Lessons will have a ‘Bonus’ activity if time allows.

Cost, Date & Time
Classes are held every Sunday from 11 AM – 1 PM and are $50 per session.  Contact us to try the class.

Goal
Au Academy will train a team of 10 or two teams of 20 students to enter the First Lego League competition at Macquarie University.  “FIRST Robotics is an internationally acclaimed robotics program that inspires a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in young people.

Founded in the USA in 1989, FIRST Australia was established at Macquarie University in 2006. Since then,FIRST Australia has partnered with schools and universities across Australia with teams and competitions held in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Australian teams have enjoyed remarkable success attending the FIRST World Championship Tournament each year from 2006 to 2014.

Worldwide there are 32,600 teams made up of 350,000+ students from nearly 80 countries. 64,000+ Mentors and 66,000+ event Volunteers and Affiliate Partners donate their time to make FIRST possible.”
