This week two Year 9 classes had their attention captured when they received a special visit from Brainery Interactive's NAO robot. The science classes participated in an interactive demonstration where they were able to see first hand the capabilities of robots, and how they are starting to transform different career related industries. The girls were impressed by the mobility of the robot and how she was able to communicate and perform skills on cue, through voice and facial recognition technologies.
The girls were equally intrigued by the superior dance moves of NAO and her ability to move in sync with the music. The girls also had the opportunity to see how simple it was to program the robot to perform simple moves such as waving hello and picking up an object.
On Tuesday, our Year 8 History students stepped back in time 953 years, to re-enact the Battle of Hastings between King Harold of England and William, Duke of Normandy.
The future of Australia’s solar power will be bright if Dr Thompson’s Year 9 STEM students have anything to do with it.
Most of us have had the pleasure of playing Putt-Putt (or mini golf), but unlike our Year 7 Science students, not many of us have designed an actual course.
