Bribie Island State School Robotics Club

​Bribie Island State School has a long history of integrating robotics based enrichment activities into their extra-curricular program.

Students who participate in the Bribie Island State School Robotics Program complete a number of challenging learning experiences throughout the year.  These challenges require students to think critically and use problem solving techniques in order to complete a number of difficult learning opportunities.

Each year, a group of students are invited to participate in the First Lego League Competition, held at QUT Caboolture. Students from around Queensland spend countless hours on building the perfect robot and participating in team challenges, including a research project.

For example, in 2014, Bribie Island State School won the research project division with their team 'The Bribie Blades'.  This team consisted of seven year 4 students who were able to present an original idea to a panel of judges during the competition.

These students independently investigated the ways in which they learn in the "Learning Unleased" project decided to create a device that would assist Prep students in learning to swim.  This device would be light weight, interactive, waterproof and easy to use.  From this criteria the FIRST-Teach (Floating Image Rescue Swim Teacher - Technology) was created.

This fantastic and original idea, was awarded first place in the Reasearch category and all students involved were acknowledged for their team work skills and achievement.

Bribie Island State School is looking forward to another great year with the Robotics Program.
