Robo-Hero Primary Schools Competition

Perth Science Fesitval logoThis year the Perth Science Festival will engage Western Australian primary schools and students in a Robo-Hero, asking students to think about improving the world around them with technology!

National Science Week 2016 is celebrating the theme ‘Drones Droids and Robots’. As such, the Robo-Hero Competition requires students to design and build a model robot that could be used to help their community, using their creativity and critical thinking.

For example, is there a litter problem in the student’s school or suburb? Perhaps they could create a robot that would pick up rubbish! Maybe regional students need drones to check on their farm stock, or to deliver medicine from larger towns.
