The children of the NGIS, Winyama and Liveli teams were ready and raring to go for a day of boardroom meetings, parental performance reviews and virtual reality experiences at the fifth annual Kids at Work Day.
The day commenced with a boardroom briefing and an office tour. The kids learnt about each of the team members and what their job responsibilities are.
To cover more ground, the kids split into two groups - each doing exercises and activities according to their age group.
Both groups were lucky enough to enjoy Scitech’s Lab on Legs robotics course during the day. The first group of four to eight year old kids learnt the foundations of coding and worked together to guide several Bee-Bot robots through a maze. The second group ranging from nine to 14 years old spent the morning learning about sensors and how to program Edison robots.
After morning tea, the parents and children went head-to-head in a general knowledge and spelling bee tournament. The competition was fierce, however, the parents eventually cracked under the pressure of their opponents and the children took out the victory.
The kids rounded out the day with lunch and then immersed themselves in a range of virtual reality games before clocking off and heading home with their parents for a much needed rest.
