The Robots Are Coming - Introducing the Narooma High Robo Rebels


“Aoki”, the 2018 competition robot designed and constructed by the Robo Rebels, Narooma High School’s Robotics team made an appearance under the dome at the Narooma Plaza from Saturday 14th April 2018.

This robot was built by the students in only three weeks and travelled to Sydney to compete in the South Pacific Regional Championships. The largely Rookie team was successful in reaching the quarter finals against robotics team that represented from many major universities as well as from across Asia.


“We are very proud of these students, they are developing 21st century skills of collaboration, and problem solving and leadership through their participation in the Robotics team”, said High School Principal John Melville.

The season will continue for the rest of the year as both the junior and senior teams compete in various events both locally and in Sydney.

The team will also continue to run Robotics workshops for Primary School students as a means of raising their own funds. The next workshop is on this Wednesday 18th April from 9.30am to 2.30pm (bookings at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/robo-camps-tickets-35499791833 )

The Robo Rebels have a vision to create a technology hub in South East NSW where current and emerging businesses, schools, education providers and community experts collaborate on projects that create employment and training opportunities needed to retain young people in our local area.
