INTRAX / WORLEY PARSONS
At Christ the King, we know real-world connections translates to meaningful learning. As part of our Numeracy Buddies program, Intrax and Worley Parsons engineers work alongside our students to develop their mathematical understanding and confidence.
Associate Professor Matthew Joordens (Head of Mechatronics) worked closely with our First Lego League students to design and print a 3D underwater robot. Matthew assisted with the process of iteration, so that the students were able to redesign their prototype based on professional feedback.
Christ the King has benefited from a strong partnership with the Ford Motor Company. Not only have Ford provided financial sponsorship, but they have provided expert engineers to work with our students and invaluable professional development on emerging technologies.
Huge multi-national tech company LiveTiles is a proud sponsor of the First Lego League and a proud industry partner.
