About this event

The Cross River Rail Innovation Challenge will provide students and teachers with the opportunity to learn more about programming, robotics and automation while giving teachers the perfect opportunity to showcase a real-world example of where engineers and scientists utilize their foundational STEM and innovation skills on a meaningful and impactful project.

Teachers will be invited to participate in a kick-off Professional Development session to introduce the program as well as being provided 10 weeks of content leading up to the final event. This will give teachers the tools and links to show how integrating programming, robotics and automation into the current Australian Curriculum can be managed.

For students, the program will provide participants with an inspiring project and place to study, with the workshop challenge enabling participants to connect their learning to real-life examples of how sensors, automation, programming, and robotics were being used by the largest machines tunnelling right below them.

Through the program, schools register their interest or will be invited to participate in a series of challenges using the Micromelon Robot Simulator, culminating in a final event at the Cross River Rail Experience Centre where each school group demonstrates their problem-solving skills.
