The article below was written by Tribotix’s Peter Turner in 2009 and used as a 2 part feature article in Educational Technology Solutions magazine. The brief given when writing the article ‘Where Australian Robotics Are At …’ was to cover:
- How robotics is becoming increasingly important in education, and why
- Where is Australia at in comparison to other countries?
- How can Australia improve the use of robotics in education?
Even though this article was written in late 2009 the message it contains is even more relevant than when it was published, considering the number of enrollments in tertiary engineering programs is still declining.
