Engineering & Robotics Camp – Spring Holiday Camp

ENGINEERING AND ROBOTICS CAMP

ENGINEERING TAKES YOU PLACES!

June - July 2021

GREAT FOR GRADE 1-7!

(May vary - check for your local franchisee)
Science & Engineering takes us places!

Yes – engineers builds roads, bridges, railways, buses and cars that takes us places. But did you know that engineers & scientists create medicine, takes people to the moon and have been at the forefront of innovation and human advancement. This winter, our Holiday Camps explores how Engineering & Science has changed the face of history and how it can help you. We look at engineering in transportation as well as careers in STEM and see how one passionate Australian scientist received a Nobel Prize for his world-changing research (even though nobody initially believed him).

We interviewed some amazing scientists and engineers to get their words of encouragement for these workshops

“Love maths, love writing, but most of all learn to love the process of learning.”

- Gorby Castillo

Gorby Castillo is a Graduate Signalling engineer specifically working with operations of the rail system, which include all the trains and buses we ride on. He says that learning ‘building blocks’ is important and useful especially if you want to be an engineer in the future. Mr Castillo works with different people to make sure we all have a fun and comfortable travels when taking the train!

“If something is difficult, then you are in the right field because if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.”

- Barry J Marshall

Barry J Marshall is a very famous scientist! He is well known for the discovery of Helicobacter Pylori which are the bacteria found in our stomach that causes tummy aches. His research was driven by his curiosity – ‘why are so many people having problems with their stomachs?’ Mr Marshall believes it is amazing that research can change so many of people’s lives. He now owns his own special laboratory where they do more scientific discoveries!

“Women are powerful.”

- Sharra Lozaga

Sharra Lozaga is a current Graduate Mechanical engineering, working with all types of different machines every day. Ms Lozaga says she found it a little challenging to be one of the few women in her field, but this has inspired her to make sure girls today are not afraid to go after their dreams! She works for Woodside, which provides us with natural gas we use in our homes.

Do you think you can take on the challenge of being an engineer?

What We Will Do

Engineering Takes You Places holiday camp runs for the full day*. Each day we will be building Lego® models, programming robots and conducting other fun-filled experiments & activities:

Transport & Travel

Do you want to travel across Australia? Or even around the world? It took the work of many great people in history to get our transportation as amazing as it is now. We build Lego® planes, trains, cars and bikes to explore how engineering takes you places (literally)!

Great Inventions

Ever wanted to be an inventor? What great things are out there to discover? This is your chance to learn about innovation, inventing and prototyping. We build and program some awesome inventions of the past. Hopefully this will inspire you to invent the next great thing of the future.

The Possibilities

Scientists & engineers have great jobs and careers – the possibilities are endless. For Prof. Barry James Marshall, his curiosity and persistence was eventually awarded with a Nobel Prize for his world-changing research on stomach ulcers. Lego(r) centrifuge is what we’ll be building to celebrate the inspiring work of this Australian scientist.

* Timing may be slightly different in different locations. Please check exact timing at your local centre.

Join us to learn & build some fascinating models of the world today!

These workshops are intentionally designed to

  • Up STEM Skills – learning is one thing, learning to learn is superior. We focus on analysing the problem, experimenting and prototyping to promote a lifelong love for STEM.
  • Ignite Curiosity – we don’t just remember answers, we leave participants with tantalising questions to promote curiosity and further exploration.
  • Build Confidence – we focus on mastery giving participants the opportunity to experience “I Can Do It”

What parents & teachers say

Thousands of happy parents are glad they enrolled their children into our workshops.

"Elliot has continued to talk about how fun Engineering Camp was. A wonderful camp and he will be attending again in the future."

Larissa from NSW

"My boys can tell when someone has real passion for what they are doing and sharing. The boys response was Mr Wong and Jack really like kids. Loved it."

Parent from WA

"Child really enjoyed seeing their creations actually work."

Parent from NSW

"Fantastic experience for young minds. Nate had an absolute blast and can not wait to do it again next year. He is still talking about it nearly 2 weeks later. Thankyou😁"

Parent from NSW

"The kids had very little interest or exposure to this form of design thinking prior to the day. Afterward they have been more engaged in robotics and coding tasks."

Michelle from Orange (NSW)

"Thoroughly engaging work. Hands on Instructions very clear. Good mix of instructions quickly followed by activity.High degree of participation and engagement"
