Whilst presenting at the Melbourne Mini Maker Faire, I did find some time to wander through the various makerspaces and came across an innovative group of students from Wooroona Park Primary School. The students, through the generous guidance from the teacher’s were literally 3D printing a Humanoid Robot as part of the #Maker education this year. The teachers were shining the torch for the inquisitive students, but you could tell the students were invested in the ambitious project.  It will be great to watch their progress over the year.
