Run by Adelaide Robotics Academy

We decided to start a new FREE project intended to inspire, engage and empower girls into computer science, engineering and related fields. The program is meant for students with high intellectual potential who will be immersed in a class of their intellectual peers.

The gifted students will be part of an elite girls-only team called THE RAYS. The free program will run every Tuesday from 4 to 5 pm during school terms at Thebarton Community Centre.

The girls will start by learning the basics of Robotics, which include Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. On completion, they will work on advanced Robotics projects and will participate in RoboCup, First Lego League (FLL) and World Robot Olympiad (WRO) competitions.

No prior experience required. Students can start at any time during the year.

Admission conditions:

  1. Age between 10 and 18.
  2. The learner must not be an existing or former student of Adelaide Robotics Academy.
  3. The candidate must demonstrate an interest in STEM areas. The preferred method will be by presenting the latest school report, which must include A or B grades in at least one of the following subjects: Science, Maths or Technology. If the students are not able to produce such a document, they may be offered the option to take an exam that will test their reasoning capabilities.
  4. They must bring their own laptops (Windows or Mac).
Did you know?

By the age of six, children start to classify jobs as male and female. By 13, they rule out careers that don’t fit with gender stereotypes. And 60% of girls aspire to stereotypically ‘female’ jobs by the age of 16. In Australia, women make up 28% of the STEM workforce, with only 14% in engineering.

There is a visible gender disparity in the STEM workforce as well as at higher education across the globe. Decreasing the gender disparity in those fields will provide more opportunity for women to generate a decent income, as well as encourage professional environments that are safer and more productive for women.
