Do you have a passion for detecting faults and identifying bugs when looking through websites? Games? Apps? If so, this 3-week program beginning in April might be just the thing for you.
This FREE program is strictly limited to just 10 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 Mindstorms 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 Mindstorms 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.
