The coming April holidays will see two courses for gifted girls of high ability run through the Imaginarium.
Astro Engineering Years 5 and 6
Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to think creatively, innovate uniquely and test ideas using challenging robotics equipment. Future astro engineers … are you ready?
Innovation and collaborative problem solving are core skills for STEM careers. Through this course, participants will explore the big questions that drive innovation and future exploration of the universe at NASA. They will analyse and synthesise ideas, collaboratively engineering solutions to complex problems using robotics equipment.
Includes an excursion to International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, Curtin University
Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 April (9.00 am – 4.00 pm) at Perth College $200
Animatronics Years 3 and 4
Do you wonder how animals behave when no one is watching? Do you enjoy working with robots? How about when the two are combined?
Participants will explore problems scientists and researchers face when observing and investigating the behaviour of animals. They will gain depth and perspective in their understanding, relating and transforming theoretical ideas to cutting-edge practical applications. Participants will use robotics equipment to create solutions, presenting these using innovative technologies.
Includes an excursion to Caversham Wildlife Park
Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 April (9.00 am – 4.00 pm) at Perth College $200
