Dubbo South Public School hosted Sydney-based e2 Young Engineers Engineering and Robotics workshop on Monday for its first time visiting a NSW Central West location.
Young Engineers director of engineers Chintan Vora said the "fantastic" work displayed by the children at the Dubbo workshop has prompted them to make a return in July. They will also expand the number of places they visit.

"We're proud to be visiting Dubbo for our first ever time visiting a Central West location, and we've seen some fantastic work from the children," Mr Vora said.
"Our workshops are mainly based on projecting businesses. So, we've asked the kids to create an amusement park.
"The workshop allows them to learn, design, experiment and imagine. We start with the learning, so we teach them the concept and then they get to design.
"Then they experiment, and then imagine how they can modify their work to be used in real life. "
Students Ivy Rich and Prisha Joe said they found the workshops to be fun.
"It's been very fun," Ivy said.
"I get to learn how to do stuff I've never done before. You get to learn how to make things bigger and bigger, and when you're older, you can get famous."
Prisha said she found the workshop to be 'difficult' at times, but "once you get the hang of it it's very fun and very easy."
Students, Reuben Elliot, Cameron and Liam Justice, Darcy Tink and Hayden Healey said also found the workshop fun.
"I like the programming bit. I don't like playing with LEGO that much but sometimes I like it. I had fun playing with it today," Cameron said.
