SACE Stage 1
Students use a range of Robotics and Control Technologies to create solutions to given and identified problems. They also explore the ethics of robots as companions and personal assistants. Students have access to a range of robotics, CNC mills and lathes, and are able to explore a range of materials including plastics and metals, such as aluminium.
Focus Of Learning
Students are introduced to principles of Design, Lean Manufacturing, Workplace Health and Safety, machine maintenance and repair in order to develop the ability to safely carry out a range of work in a production-focused environment.
Programming – Robotics, CNC Mill, CNC Lathe
Workplace Health and Safety
Machine maintenance and repairs
Evidence Of Learning
A variety of tasks allow students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding through:
INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY
Designing solutions to given design briefs
Designing and coding robotics systems
CRITICAL THINKING AND PROBLEM SOLVING
Solving problems that arise during realisation process
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
Development of coding skills
Students are required to pay $100.00 for consumables and equipment.
