For enthusiasts of drones, UAV’s and aerial robotics, Innovate’s Aerial Robotics is for you! Drones are getting very popular in today’s technology filled world and have changed the way many things such as photography, deliveries and other jobs are done.
In this introductory aerial robotics drone workshop for kids in Melbourne, students will get to learn about all drones, drone hardware, flight knowledge and learn to be able to fly through some mini drone challenges and obstacles.
A module that teaches students about drones and how they work, safety rules, flying responsibly, how they are made etc. Students will learn how use the drones to fly, flip, land and more. They will take on the specific drone challenges set out for them and see if their drone gets through the challenges and drone obstacles. Hands on Science and Maths!
Some outdoor experience will include viewing the flight of the Dji Pro and Dji Spark (within limits and guidelines) during the course of the module. Added indoor experience includes a drone flight simulator for students to attain hands on real life drone simulation experiences. This module is great for students who love and respect technology and who value learning about how drones work and drone technology in general.
NOTE: This module is not just for flying drones all through the course but for serious learners who are keen to understand and explore drones. Some essential theory about aerial robotics involved. No prior experience required. Strictly limited places per season.
  • STUDENTS WILL LEARN:

    • An introduction to drones and drone technology
    • Drone materials and safety requirements
    • Flight safety
    • Flight controls
    • Navigating flight paths through obstacles
    • Scientific concepts such as aerodynamics and gravity

A robotics module for students who are keen on exploring robots and what these robots can do. This popular module has reached many students across Melbourne and even interstate students and engaged them into the world of robotics with its colourful robot models and fun learning.
Through this module, students will explore the various sensors and engage in building and programming several different and interesting robotics models which are unique (think a Woodpecker, a spider, legs and more!) using a Studuino board. And yes,  there are heaps of bricks used to make the models which is any budding roboticist’s dream!
RoboSENSEsation is for the robotics enthusiast with or without experience who loves robots and technology and is ready to be challenged to explore and create!
 
  • STUDENTS WILL LEARN:

    • Robots and how they work in their given environments
    • Fundamentals of robotics
    • The different sensors and what they are used for in robotics
    • How to put together 3D blocks by following the model instructions
    • The Studuino board and how to use it.
    • Programming and giving commands to their robot using drag and drop programming software
    • Programming logic

     

  • SKILLS DEVELOPMENT:

    • Coding with the drag and drop software
    • Program flow
    • Programming using studuino
    • Hands on building and discovery

Course Description: The Marvels of Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing 

Path: Technology (STEM Specialist Module)
Prerequisite: No prior experience needed but student should be open to learning various types of technology as this is a specialist course.

Grade: Grades 3 to 6
Date: 25 and 26 September July 2019, Wednesday and Thursday
Time: 9.00am – 3.00pm, daily (2 day program)
Location: Forest Hill College, Burwood East, Victoria
Cost: $330 including material fee (includes GST)

A premium STEM specialist course for the middle school student which focuses on Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing.
Additive Manufacturing
3D printing is part of our world and continues to fascinate people . Students will learn the concepts behind 3D printing and understand how 3D printing works. Yes, from the time the design is created and when it goes to print using design software.
Students will be able to learn about the design to print process during the session. They will understand how 3D printing continues to evolve from design to print and how 3D printing impacts technology and our world – the advantages and disadvantages of 3D printing, which gets them thinking. 
Subtractive Manufacturing
Students will venture into Subtractive Manufacturing which involves design and manufacturing! Subtractive manufacturing is a process by which 3D objects are constructed by successively cutting material away from a solid block of material.
Subtractive manufacturing can be done by manually cutting the material but is most typically done with a CNC Machine.
One of the advantages of subtractive manufacturing is the variety of materials that can be used, from wood and metal to plastics and acrylics to plasma. (Finer applications such as laser engravers work with an even wider array of materials.) CNC is widely used in manufacturing, and can be found in most facilities.
In this course, students will explore, understand and then move into creating and then printing their own designs using the CNC Machine. This is a course most suited for students who love and want to explore engineering and manufacturing.
  • Students will take home a 3D printed object which they have created and a carved masterpiece of their own

  • Students are strongly encouraged to bring a camera to film their projects being manufactured and a USB to save their projects.

  • STUDENTS WILL LEARN:

    • Introduction to Advanced Manufacturing
    • Introduction to 3D design and print (Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing)
    • How 3D printing and CNC Milling is used
    • Learn the process of 3D printing and CNC Milling and how they  evolve from design to print
    • How to design a 3D model / CNC model and bring it to print / carve
    • Advantages and disadvantages of Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing
  • SKILLS DEVELOPMENT:

    • Learn to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software
    • Hands on design for both 3D printing and carving
    • Understanding advanced manufacturing (CNC and 3D printing)
