New for ’22: Robotics Demonstration Challenge

For a number of years we have been pondering the potential of robotics in the Energy Breakthrough. This year we have invited four teams - two Secondary and two Primary - to compete in the first Robotics Demonstration Challenge.  We plan for this to become an open event in 2023 with a number of Coding / Robotics Professional Development sessions being run around the state of Victoria to encourage more schools to get involved.

Get up to speed with our EB Explainer Webinars

Get up to speed with one of our 'EB Explainer Webinars' to be held online on Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th of May between 4:15pm - 5:00pm. We know that with the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020 and 2021, many Energy Breakthrough programs have new students, new teachers and new parents who have never participated before. With this in mind, we are hosting two 'EB Explainer Webinars' to help educate and inspire the 2022 generation of Team Managers and students. Please note: The session will be repeated each time, so you'll only need to attend once!
