Bot submissions

Check out these fun stories about robots



Canberra families and children got creative

Workshop participants were invited to tell a story about their Brave Bots. Storytelling is an important skill for life as well as engaging with science, technology, engineering and maths. 

In the online workshop, viewers are shown how to make a brave bot and how to do a stop motion animation, using the Stop Motion app.

All submissions were welcome. We didn’t mind what you created  — from art, stories/poems, videos, animations — because you’ve had fun, gained new skills and thought about someone else.

Climbing a dangerous mountain, dodging boulders

Levi from Bonner in the ACT is 11. He created a stop motion animation video about Brave Bots climbing a dangerous mountain and dodging boulders. “They made it,” he says.

Levi’s message to people who are unwell or need some joy in their lives: “Be Brave. Be creative.”

Brave bots in the ocean

Ruth from Bonner in the ACT is 8. She created a stop motion animation video about Brave Bots swimming in the ocean. They meet a turtle.

“It looks like it swallows them but, actually, it didn’t. They climb on her back for a ride,” she said.

When asked to share a message to people who are unwell or need some joy in their lives, Ruth said: “Turn the music up loud and make brave bots, it will make you feel better.”

Sky Dragon Brave Bot

By Xanthe from Macgregor, ACT.

This bot will help anyone be brave.

Xanthe’s message for those who are unwell or need some joy? “Everything will improve.”

The eagle-eyed among us will see a super cute creature on Xanthe’s bot’s tummy.

Special note: Within an hour of the online brave bot workshop finishing Claire had received an email from Xanthe and Astrid’s mum. The backyard was abuzz, she said as bot building was underway.
