Our workshops are project-based student centred incursions all aligned to ACARA Digital Technology & State-specific curriculums.

We come to your school, and fit into your school day (we even do after school classes). We bring all of our own robots, laptops/iPads and software, allowing one robot and laptop/iPad for every two students. We ensure all of the kids are constantly engaged and differentiate the programs throughout the workshop. We also bring along work booklets suited for your student’s learning levels.

Robokids has an 85% rebooking rate with our client schools in Australia and 100% recommendation from our clients. Robokids teams will maximise programming time with every student creating a minimum of 7 – 9 programs per day. Students who finish the program receive a Student Robotics Programmer Certificate.

Our Preschool to Year 10 science incursion programs have been recognised nationally. Most of our current clients enjoy the continuum of Workshops 1-3. For example, Year 5 may participate in workshops 1 & 2 then the following year as year 6’s workshop 3.

Specific workshop descriptors are available on request.
