Subject Overview
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.

Topics include:
     Programming – Robotics, CNC Mill, CNC Lathe
     Lean Manufacturing
     Workplace Health and Safety
     Machine maintenance and repairs
     Major product

Evidence Of Learning
A variety of tasks allow students to develop knowledge, skills and understanding through:
     Designing solutions to given design briefs
     Designing and coding robotics systems
     Solving problems that arise during realisation process
     Development of coding skills
Students are required to pay $100.00 for consumables and equipment.
Students succesfully completing this course will receive 10 SACE credits at SACE Stage 1.
