Robotics

Robot for 2015 regional

Robotics at Marsden is one of our signature programs; it provides a highly engaging medium for creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication, four essential skills for learning and ICT within a curriculum context. 

Students from year 8-12 meet once per week after school in our Robotics/Technology room. 

Our Year 7 students meet one lunchtime each week and work on Lego Robotics. Our Year 8 students mentor them.

From 2015 FRC will be holding an International/Regional competition, which we will be competing in at Sydney Olympic Park, this competition attracts teams from all over Australia and Asia.

The picture above, shows our 2015 robot in demonstration mode at Macquarie University. The brief was to build a robot that is able to pick up totes/bins and litter. The video below describes the game for 2015- called Recycle Rush.
 
in 2016 the robotics team competed in both the Sydney and Hawaiian Regional events. With our talented robotics team and robust robot, we managed to place 2nd in both events. The game in 2016 is called Stronghold.
