Robot IQ Robotics Academy

Age Range: Grades 4 to 6

Prerequites: Suitable for students who have a keen interest in technology, robotics and computer science. No prior experience is required. Good behaviour in the classroom is expected.



The popular Robot IQ Robotics Academy is suitable for students who love STEM and who wish to take on their learning of robotics to a higher and deeper level with progression along our academic pathway. The Robot IQ Robotics Academy is also suited for beginners with a great attitude of wanting to learn.

Students will learn about different smart motors, sensors, gears, chains, tank threads and much more. While also developing their building skills, students will also be taught coding with ROBOT C which is a popular programming language for software development and are building a foundation that sets up a perfect pipeline to future robotics competitions, college, university and a career.

The Robot IQ Robotics Academy also provides lessons using Virtual Robotics which gives students a good knowledge of coding their robots in a virtual environment which will further develop their programming skills with ROBOT C.

Students at the Robot IQ Robotics Academy are provided with fun fields to play with various kits and challenges, to get into the competitive atmosphere of the Innovate’s Robotics Competitions. Through the year, students will learn a variety of different projects and participate in other engineering challenges as part of Innovate’s curriculum (students will have to be in the academy for the year to experience these additional activities). With our interactive and tool driven learning environment, students are able to learn while making new friends, learn how to work in teams, problem solve, develop their critical thinking skills and gain a wholesome STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education. 

Robot IQ Robotics Academy students will be guided by instructors who are experienced in teaching robotics as a subject in Australian schools and coached teams for national and international robotics competitions.
