Event Description.

It's time again for another complete robotics course! ProxiTech is hosting the ultimate preparation course for the RoboRAVE Australia competition, Professional RoboRAVE Robotics, hosted only these Easter Holidays at the Peregian.

Day 1 is a great beginner's course or refresher with an overview of some great robotics systems to use for the RoboRAVE competition, including Lego SPIKE, Micromelon, and Arduino! Day 2 will put these robots to the test in some of the challenges from RoboRAVE, including maze solving in Mouse Labyrinth! Day 3 will conclude with an ultimate guide to creating a Sumo robot for RoboRAVE, covering some more advanced engineering and programming concepts on Arduino!

Workshop Dates.

These workshops are all located at the Peregian Digital Hub during the 2024 Easter holidays on the following dates:

Tuesday - Introduction to Robotics (Beginner):
02/04/2024, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Wednesday - Lego & Micromelons in RoboRAVE (Intermediate):

Ticket Options.

General Admission (Recommended) ($125):
  • Participation in all three workshops at a discounted price! Best for getting the full experience. 
  • Three 4-hour sessions taught by professional educators and internationally winning robotics engineers!
  • All gear provided (robots, building materials, activity resources, laptops) for use during the workshops.

Single Day Admission ($55):
  • Participation in only one of the workshop sessions. Best if your student only wants specific knowledge.
  • Any of the one 4-hour sessions taught by international winning robotics students!
  • All gear provided (robots, building materials, activity resources, laptops) for use during the workshop. 

    Students/Parents must supply:

    • Snacks/lunch and water bottles for the workshops.
    • Travel to and from the workshops.
    • (Preferred) Laptop to code on (no tablets/iPads). 
      Optionally, you can also download the Lego SPIKE Software, Micromelon IDE, and Arduino IDE.

      If your student does not have a laptop we will provide them with one. If you cannot download the software before the session, please ensure any parental controls allow for us to download it during the workshop. 

    Pre-Knowledge and Age Requirements.

    This course is split into 3 sessions with distinct levels of difficulty. Complete beginners in coding and robotics are encouraged to attend the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions. Only students with some or significant robotics experience should attend the Thursday session, as the content covered is more difficult and abstract. Advanced students are still encouraged to attend the Tuesday and Wednesday sessions to reinforce any gaps in their knowledge and provide a complete experience.

    Age is usually not a determining factor in a student's abilities in robotics, however, we do recommend your child has some level of experience using a keyboard and mouse/trackpad on a laptop, as it's an important skill to have for programming. If you have any questions regarding your student's eligibility for the course, please reach out to Oscar for further details.

    Point of Contact.
