Harvest Time at the OzoFarm

OzoFarm game entries close 31 January

As school holidays draw to a close, the time has come to put the finishing touches on the OzoFarm games you’ve dreamed up and submit them for your library’s chance at the $500 prize pack.  Still working out whether your OzoFarmers will be planting seeds, herding goats or collecting eggs?  There’s still time to plant the seeds of creativity!

Technology is changing the way we farm, and it’s not hard to imagine robots being involved with all kinds of farm tasks, from harvesting crops to shearing sheep.  Knowing how to work with robotics will be a critical skill for future farmers, and by learning the language of programming today, we can create the solutions needed for smarter farms.

Queensland is big on farming, and we here at State Library developed the OzoFarm game to get everyone thinking about the future of our State.

Now it’s your turn!

OzoFarm has the potential to be so much more than just a race to plant crops. We’re challenging Public Libraries to develop their own OzoFarm games to compete for an Ozobot prize pack valued at over $500.

Entries are not limited to crop farming.  Use your imagination and think about how robots might help farmers grow tropical fruits or harvest honey.  Will your Ozobots need special attachments or protective gear?  Which coded Ozobot manoeuvres will be most useful in getting the job done?
