Kate has an amazing ability to enable people to collaborate effectively and adapt to change …. this is how we meet up with Kate. Back in early days, just around the time Facebook was starting, Kate created her own Social Network called Eviva – but Kate’s was for school children to work and collaborate effectively online …. this was way ahead of anything else being done at the time. We worked with Kate on a pilot program to get students in the Illawarra region to do their IT-based school work experience online on a robotic platform where the supervision was provided by us remotely. This was a great success, but as with many great ideas, funding wasn’t available to take this from the pilot stage to an on-going program. Since working on this project, Kate has been a constant sounding board for our ideas and has provided us with key introductions to other innovative people and companies looking to change the way that education is delivered.

Since then Michael has worked with us and advised us on many, many projects including the redesign of the DARwIn-OP’s head to accommodate a HD camera for the NUBots. His designs are always functional and eloquent.
