Robotics study tours
With its successful robotics program Chancellor State College offers a unique experience for International Study Tours and Study Abroad students. Our robotics programs have led to our teams becoming Australian and world champions and our experienced staff can tailor a program from introductory level through to world competition standard.
A study group of students from Hong Wen, Taiwan, spent two weeks on a robotics study tour at Chancellor State College. Students were taught about robotics components, coding and computational thinking. They built robots that could navigate mazes, avoid obstacles, play music, display graphics and respond to voice commands. Students used their learning to engineer battling robots to compete in a culminating Sumo Robotics Challenge. We look forward to receiving more international students taking part in Robotics study tours at Chancellor.
Homestay is organized by the school. Students are placed with families who have children of similar age or interest. Chancellor’s Host Families are very kind and friendly.
