Our Team

RoboRAVE AUSTRALIA

is a robotics program administered by ProActive Robotics NFP, born out of the highly successful RoboCoast Sunshine Coast Robotics Association.  It is comprised of board members from schools, universities and businesses operating mainly in Queensland, Australia. Our objective is to promote the uptake of robotics and coding in Australia through the delivery of community outreach days that culminate in events such as RoboRAVE Australia.
