2020 Victoria STEMLabs February / March Program
Do you have a passion for detecting faults and identifying bugs when looking through websites or games and apps? Do you have an eye for detail? A passion for finding specific information in news articles, publications, research etc? Ever considered a role in business administration or records management? If so, this 3-week program might be just the thing for you.
This FREE program is strictly limited to just 12 places and we are looking for some of Melbourne’s most inquisitive minds to participate in a fast-paced 3-week program where you will be applying your inquisitive and investigative mind to a series of technology-based activities using robotics kits in individual and small team challenges.
Specifically, you will be designing, developing and programming LEGO Mindstorm robot innovations that will provide solutions to the challenge themes set by our facilitators. You will create detailed plans for your innovations describing the detail around how you designed, developed and programmed your robot innovation and create test documentation that will act as a user guide for your innovation.
Although you don’t necessarily need previous experience using Lego Mindstorm robots, having at least basic understanding of programming languages such as C#, Python, Java etc would be beneficial. Overall, if you have a passion for details and technology, we encourage you to apply.
