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.
Wenona’s Cadets ranked highly in a Junior Promotions Course held in April, with five among the top 10 participants just six weeks after the School introduced the co-curricular activity.
Wenona teachers began Term 2 with a professional development day that explored ways to build a culture of reflection and help students actively seek feedback.
The recent Year 9 History excursion brought to life concepts of immigration and movement of peoples.
