Engenium recently donated two EV3 robotic kits to the Dampier Primary School, located in the Pilbara region of northwest Western Australia.
Dampier primary school is an independent school with limited STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) resources. The donated robotics kits will be used to assist the kids to explore STEM by creating and programming through the interactive platform.
Jamie Armstrong who heads up Engenium’s Dampier Office identified the opportunity for Engenum to assist and was on hand, along with Perth based Director, Brian de Swardt, to present the robotic kits to the school.
The presentation and the robotics kits donation was well received by the school. Later writing on their Facebook page, “Yesterday, we were very fortunate to receive an amazing donation of two EV3 Robots from Engenium. Thanks so much to Jamie Armstrong and Brian De Swardt who came to personally present them. The two Engineers hope to inspire our children to build, create and problem solve. These awesome robots will certainly help them learn these skills. Thank you.”
The school hopes to compete in a regional and national competition, held annually.
