Block code with LEGO EV3, LEGO SPIKE and mBot Ranger and Python coding with mBot2, Immersion Day brought to you by RoboCoast

About this event

RoboCoast would like to invite you to take part in an exciting opportunity to develop student and teacher’s skills in Block coding LEGO EV3, Spike Prime and mBot Ranger robots and Python coding with mBot2. This Immersion day is free for schools to attend and is aimed at school groups wishing to develop their robotics program or club. The event is open for students in Years 4 - 12 and schools may bring a maximum of 20 students in Years 4 - 6 for the Block coding session and 10 students in years 7-12 for the Python Coding session.

At the Immersion day, students in the Block coding session will be working in teams of two and will need 1 x robot, 1 x USB cable and 1 x laptop per team. In the Python session, students will be working individually and will need 1 x mBot2 robot, 1 x USB cable and 1 x laptop per student. If your school does not have all the equipment required, we are able to bring equipment for you to loan for the day. During the event students will learn how to code their robots for a range of different challenges.

Immersion Days are designed to train rookie teams up to a standard so that they can compete in the RoboRAVE Australia International competition at the USC stadium at Sippy Downs on Sunday 17th July 2022. At the end of the day, schools will be provided with a Sumo board and line follow mat to take back to their school to continue your robotics journey and prepare for competition.
