TECH savvy students had the chance to work with robots this week, and they didn't even have to leave their classrooms.

Run by QMEA, independent technology education guru Dr Damien Kee met with year nine students at Chanel College, Tannum Sands and Gladstone State High schools this week.

Dr Kee also provided professional development for 15 teachers with new skills and knowledge around robotics, IT and programming to enable them to provide a higher level of this important education for their students back in the classroom.

QMEA director Katrina-Lee Jones said they were always looking for new opportunities to engage and educate students with skills and knowledge especially with robotics and programming.

"QMEA has an increasingly greater focus in schools on enhancing students' knowledge in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects and especially robotics and technology skills to help prepare students for the fast-moving employment market."
