ROBOTS that protect the environment and others that build paths over crash sites were just some of the creations on show during a National Science Week competition celebrating droids, drones and robots.

Kids from five local schools were asked to design robots that would help to solve a community issue.

These were presented as a diagram, model or animated video at Harmony Primary School.

Harmony Primary School Year 1 teacher Kim Terace said the event allowed students to call on all the knowledge they had picked up in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

“With the current government focus on STEM and innovation it shows that the students are on this journey,” she said.

Harmony Primary, Atwell Primary, Beeliar Primary, Jandakot Primary and Hammond Park Primary took part.
