Take a look at some of the innovative projects being completed through the study of all things STEM.

RoboRoos are the only non-school-based, volunteer group in South Australia to compete in the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology's Robotics Competition (FRC). RoboRoos fills the void for teenagers who may not succeed in sport but wish to participate in team-based activities. “Providing a different outlet for students to do things that they otherwise wouldn’t get to do is a key source of satisfaction,” chairman of the Students Robotic Club Peter Ryan-Kane said.

Who are the Roboroos
We’re a community group, a FIRST® Robotics Team and so much more – including South Australia’s first FRC team. The team’s purpose is to excite young minds about STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), by using a common interest: Robots. As part of this, students get real industry experience, with help and guidance from dedicated industry professionals as mentors. It circumvents the age-old circle of being unable to get a job due to lack of experience. Part of our ethos is to maintain a gender balance, which we continue to strive for and achieve. Our students come from varying backgrounds, and varying schools across Adelaide. All that’s common is team members all have a passion for robotics and learning – that’s the foundation of what’s needed to be successful in the team. If you’re willing to learn, there’s always someone willing to teach.
