Changing our future by facilitating the extra curricular learning for students to pursue STEM.
Building a robot requires a wide range of skill areas, all of which you'll have a chance to participate in. You
don't need any exprience; our mentors are here to develop your skills.
Computer-Aided Design (CAD)
The goal of the CAD sub-team is to create digital models of our robots using Autodesk Inventor software. We use
these designs to create prototypes of our ideas and finally use them to manufacture parts for our robot
through machines such as 3D Printers, laser cutters and CNC Mills.
The mechanical team focuses on building the robot and following the CAD that
the cad team made. Due to the small nature of our team, there is a large
overlap between the mechanical and cad teams. They use tools like a laser
printer, 3d printer and some hand tools to create the robot.
The software team focuses on developing the code for making
the robot actually move the robot. It is often the smallest
group as there is a limited number of computers and a limited
number of people who can code well and also their are less
people who are interested in coding.
The electrical team focuses on the electrical components
and wiring of the robot where you will learn soldering and
wiring skills. This is what connects the code to the
mechanical parts of the robot.
The media team is focused on the promotion and outreach. They
take photos at other competitions and build/update the website.
Who it's for
We're looking for school students, in Year 5-12 (ages 10+), who are
willing to travel to UNSW in Kensington. We meet on Wednesdays from 5 PM to 8 PM in
Electrical Enginneering building (G17) lab G14.
