Year 9 students recently visited the Monash Nova Rover workshop at Monash University under the guidance of Siena alumna, Rebecca Leith (Class of 2017). Using Computer Assisted Design (CAD) software, students designed and 3D printed wheels for their mini rovers. After assembling their mini rovers, students competed with each other in a series of challenges.
The whole Year 9 cohort also had the opportunity to hear from the Nova Rover team present their program on different aspects of engineering and design that go into creating a successful rover. A fantastic learning experience for our students who showed a high level of engagement and interest all day.
A big thank you to the Nova Rovers for your time, no doubt inspiring a few future engineers!
