SYDNEY ROBOTICS ACADEMY
Robotics is a powerful platform that can engage the children of today. It encompasses elements of Applied Physics; Mathematics; Computer Programming; Digital Prototyping and Design; critical thinking and problem solving abilities, and teamwork and leadership skills.
VEX WORLD CHAMPION
The first time ever that Australia has won the world championship for VEX Robotics Competition
TOP RANKING ROBOTICS ACADEMY
Our academy is one of the best places to learn in Australia. We have won various competitions and are first in the world in VEX IQ.
NUMBER 1 RANK
Sydney Robotics Academy is ranked number 1 in the world for our VEX IQ Skills Challenge
Sydney Robotics Academy's four VEX IQ teams have taken the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th spot in Australia!
We have participated in the worldwide VEX championships as well as winning a variety of local events
Sydney Robotics Academy is a unique, innovative and highly effective educational institution. All the programmes at Sydney Robotics Academy are carefully designed to cultivate an interest in life-long learning and to shape good learning habits in our students. Through fostering logical thinking abilities, focusing on the application of knowledge and participating in national and international competitions, we aim to develop all-round students of the 21st century who are highly motivated, forward-looking and future-ready.
VEX IQ JUNIOR
For children from years 1 to 3, this course introduces them to the world of robotics and programming, allowing them to quickly learn about and enjoy the fun in VEX.
VEX IQ ADVANCED
The advanced VEX IQ class is for students who are eager to further their involvement in VEX where they will learn more technical skills and also be able to develop complicated programs for their robots.
VEX V5 PRO
Our advanced VEX V5 course is for senior primary school students or high school students, allowing them to build robots which are much more sophisticated and using a higher level of programming.
OXFORD PROGRAMMING WORKSHOP
Students from years 1 to 3 can learn a range of visual programming languages to introduce them to programming. They will also be creating apps of their own and solving many challenges which prepares them for the Oxford Computing Competition.
Senior students who are experienced in programming can try our Python 3 coding lessions where they will learn how to solve a variety of problems using the newest and best programming language available today.
Students attending the VEX V5 Pro courses can also enrol in the C++ coding course to learn how to program the robots using C+++. Senior students will also use C++ for coding competitions worldwide.
We often host a variety of holiday camps for our students. During these camps our students are able to have fun whilst learning new skills. Students are often rewarded with prizes and gifts throughout the camp.
Many Ivy League universities in the United States are using VEX as the preferred design tool for STEM projects. Sydney Robotics Academy is currently the only academy in New South Wales to provide extracurricular training for VEX robotics. Our qualified trainers include VEX Robotics licensed coaches and certified referees leading three current VEX teams 988A, 858A, and 868A.

The VEX world championship brings together qualifying teams from the three VEX Robotics programs; the VEX IQ Challenge (elementary and middle school), VEX Robotics Competition (middle school and high school), and VEX U (college), for a celebration of the robotics community and to crown World Champions. The event is held in Dallas, TX in the United States.
VEX IQ NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Teams compete in the Robot Skills Challenge where one robot takes the field to score as many points as possible. These matches consist of Driving Skills Matches, which will be entirely driver controlled, and Programming Skills Matches, which will be autonomous with limited human interaction.
OXFORD COMPUTING CHALLENGE
The Oxford University Computing Challenge (OUCC) is a two-round online competition that uses students' skills further to produce programmed solutions to computational thinking problems.
INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIAD IN INFORMATICS
The IOI is one of five international science olympiads and the most prestigious computer science competition in the world for secondary school students. It bring together exceptionally talented pupils from various countries to share scientific and cultural experiences through computer science and programming challenges.
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
IN HOUSE TEACHING
