Upcoming workshops 2017

FREE upcoming science and engineering workshops for school students!

Robogals Perth is a student run volunteer organisation based at the University of Western Australia and our primary goal is to increase the numbers of females undertaking engineering, science and technology at University. Our founder, Marita Cheng, recently won Young Australian of the Year 2012 for her work in starting up Robogals and the impact it has had on thousands of students around the world.

Using programmable robots, we teach the principles of engineering in a fun and creative manner. No prior experience in robotics necessary.

Is your daughter interested in science, maths or technology? Look no further! Please find details below about our upcoming Holiday Workshops.


Holiday Workshops 

What
We hold holiday workshops for any interested girls. We are trialing a new system of holding two types of workshop, Beginner and Returners. Both workshops will have similar activities involving robotics and engineering activities. Returners workshops are aimed at children who have attended our workshops in the past or are older. If you are unsure about which workshop to book a place in then do not fret as our volunteers will be doing their best to ensure all children at the workshops have a challenge suitable for them.

When

We will be doing our best to hold the Holiday Workshops most school holidays, please let us know if you are interested.

Beginner workshops | aim at students from Years 3-9 (ages 8 or 9-14 or 15)
- will be held at 9am-12pm on Saturday 22nd of April.

Returners workshops | aim at students from Years 3 and above
- will be held at 2pm-5pm on Saturday 22nd of April.

Where

Scitech Science Awareness Festival

Scitech Albany Science Awareness Festival 22nd-23rd March 2012

 

Robogals Perth participated in a two-day science showcase, which featured interactive displays, hands-on exhibits and short talks to raise awareness about science and technology careers in the region.

 

We also visited Little Grove Primary School to run a robotics workshop for the girls.

 

Overall, an amazing and rewarding trip as we made an impact on over 1000 students, learnt some science ourselves and visited some of amazing natural scenery that surrounds beautiful Albany!
   

Holy Spirit School VIsit

Robogals Perth held another successful robotics workshop to the kids at Holy Spirit Primary School.

We had some first time volunteers coming along which was great to see! All the kids were so engaged and loved racing their programmed robots against each other.

It was a great chance to create connections with the school also, and we received an amazing testimonial from one of the teachers there:

"The afternoon provided our students to work with the Mindstorm Robotics kits . Some found the dismantling and reassembling the 'robots' a challenge, while others enjoyed the opportunity to program the robots to complete various manoeuvres. All of the children could work at their own level and it gave them an opportunity to work as a team. It was a very rewarding experience. Thank you to you and the other Robogals for the opportunity to participate in the program."

- Clare Magee, Year 6 Science and Technology Teacher. Holy spirit School.

   

O-day 2012!

O-day was a fantastic day in the sun! All the new students coming into UWA came for an orientation day and to meet and greet with all the fantastic clubs on offer. We had a great response with the number of sign ups, and looking forward to meeting the new volunteers soon!

   

Baking goods ready for O-Day!

Hey everyone!
hope all your holidays have been going great, they've definiately been going fast anyway, and coming up at the end of the month is this years O-DAY festival!

We'll be holding a stall to promote robogals to the wide-eyed firstyears, letting everyone know about our first training sessions and giving away cookies and icey poles to help beat the heat!

I know we all want to think that the start of uni is still far, far away, but make sure you put this date in your diary. As well as being a great day to meet people and get freebies, the o-day festival will also have an awesome FREE concert (The Aston Shuffle! Stonefield! Purple Sneaker DJs!) and all your favourite clubs (us!) will be there :)
