Frequently Asked Questions
Where is the program being held?
The Education Centre is located within Bicentennial Park in Sydney Olympic Park. To get there, enter the park via the Australia Avenue gates and follow the signs around to the p10f carpark (it is almost at the park exit). Once you reach p10f, you'll see signs to the Education Centre! If you're arriving by train, Concord West train station is closer to the venue than Olympic Park train station.

My child is under 6 years old, can they attend with their older sibling?
No unfortunately. The minimum age of this program is set to ensure that children attending have the mathematical and problem solving skills to successfully program the robots and keep up with the pace of the program. Younger children tend to fall behind and can end up frustrated which can have an impact on the rest of the class.
