Where every child has a place

adminEngineering camps for kids and teens

Kids come to holiday workshops for different reasons. Some are these to learn and try something new. Some are there to enhance their knowledge of things. 

Some are searching for an experience. Some want to do something nice with a friend.  Some are looking for a form of distraction from the troubles they face outside. Some are looking to keep up with technology. Some learn differently.

Innovate Tech Camps Australia is the place where every kid and teen is accepted. Whether they learn differently from others, face challenges in life or are trying to find something they like, Innovate Tech Camps welcomes children openly.

We know you want the best for your child. Talk to us today of how our camps can benefit your child, special needs or not. 

We want the best for them too!

 

Summer Camps -January 2014

Innovate Tech Camps Summer Camps have been on going in the past two weeks. We have been so thrilled to be among very innovative youth who have such passion for technology.

We have entered the world of bio medical sciences and have been exploring how fractures are repaired, stents inserted, pacemakers for the heart, bones and lots more.

It has been amazing seeing robots at work with their bio medical missions and how  these are powered by our students. Well done.

We have more programs available for our Autumn Camp in April 2014. The programs are out here on our website. Book your seat for an Autumn Camp and get your hands on our early bird offers.

Check it out and book your place early! Let the innovation begin!

Nancy REC

In the past week, Robotics Club was pleased to welcome Nancy McIntyre of the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation (REC Foundation) to Melbourne, Australia.

During her visit, Nancy visited several of our clubs and introduced the Vex and Vex IQ robotics platforms to our members during our weekly club sessions. Nancy also visited several high schools to kick start the Vex Robotics Competition in Australia. It was a very eventful week for Robotics Club as Nancy showed members and school teachers how the Vex IQ and Vex Robotics system worked.

Robotics Club members were thrilled to be among the first students in Australia to use Vex robotics kits. It will be a long journey ahead for the growth of the Vex Robotics Competition in Australia but we are looking forward to this ride!

Go Vex Robotics!

What we have been upto?

adminGeneral, Robotics, Robotics Club Videos

It’s been 5 weeks since our Robotics Club started in Term 2 at Camelot Rise Primary School and we’ve been up to several things. The kids in both the WeDo class and the NXT class are incredibly talented and have been working hard and having fun!


For the WeDo class, the kids got to talk about different types of robots and have explored the use of Gears in real life and have watched videos of the same. They have all successfully built and programmed two robots from the WeDo series. These kids can certainly follow instructions from manuals which is a great start to the world of Robotics! Last week, we decided to challenge them to build their own robots and were amazed at their creations. Let’s see if they work this week!


In the NXT class, the kids have been building their robots over the past few weeks. It was challenging for them as NXT sets come with many parts and little pieces. A few groups started programming their robots and making them work. We set out a little challenge of getting their robots to move along a straight line and doing a turn. They have also explored the uses of gears and are starting to see them at work in their own creations which is exciting!

The Robotics program continues to run through the year and we will continue to build and tackle new challenges throughout Term 3 and beyond.

Here’s a little video we have created for you.
