Spark6 – Back to the Future
Lexi Menin (6.10, O’Donnell) & Ella Borbely (6.10, Kelly)
On Monday, 24 June 2017, the Year 6s went to the Forum for a Q&A session about robots. We had five specialists on our panel answering our questions, Darp, a technology guru, Mrs Marshall, Head of Digital Learning, Mrs Radley, Rio Tinto Innovator, Mr Elder, Principal and Mrs Hansen, Dean of Students – Years 5 & 6. There was a lot of wisdom between the five guests, and by the end we had all made a decision about whether robots are making the world a better place.

I was very privileged to be chosen to come up and speak to the robot. The robot was incredible and did things I thought we would not achieve for a long time. It was an amazing experience.

In Spark6 this semester, we learnt about technology and that not all technological things have to be electronic. For example, the chair and pencil are both technology, because they make our lives easier! We also learnt about robots and how they work and what they do. We had our own Q&A with a panel to ask questions about robots with a real one there! The panel gave us lots of insight into whether robots are good or bad, and whether they think they will do good things for our world. They gave us answers to all our questions and we had lots of fun. We learnt a lot, we can’t wait to see what we’ll learn next semester!
