This STEM program brings one of Scienceworks most successful workshops to students in regional areas.

Robotics on the Road is a hands-on, incursion program that engages students in logic and algorithmic thinking, requiring students to write instructions for their robot using block-based programming language.

Students work in pairs with MBots and iPads, developing STEM skills such as problem solving, creativity and innovation as they code, debug and collaborate to achieve a motivating end-goal. The program will also engage students in considering STEM future careers and applications.

All  regional Victorian Government schools and low fee-paying, non-government schools are eligible to access Positive Start programs. We will do our best to accommodate as many requests as possible (subject to availability).

Museums Victoria acknowledges the support of the Department of Education and Training, Victoria, through the Positive Start in 2022 initiative.
