Stage 2 has been programming the Lego Boost robots. This week they learnt to move his head to the left and right; to talk and react and to move in different directions to navigate an obstacle course. We're looking forward to teaching him some dance moves next week.
Early Stage 1 using left, right, forwards and backwards to create algorithms for the BeeBots and Code-A-Pillars...
Stage 1 followed directions carefully to create kicking boots and sail boats. They programmed them to move forwards, backwards, make sounds and repeat actions using the drag and drop blocks in the WeDo software.
Stage 2 have been putting their maths skills to good use when trying to solve some challenges with the Dash robot using Blockly programming software.
For this challenge they needed to measure lengths and angles and create an algorithm for Dash to complete the circuit.
Stage 3 programmed the NXT robots to perform various tasks last term. At the end of the term they prepared a programme which directed the robot to follow a dark line to reach the Easter egg reward at the end.
This term Stage 3 are using the Sphero robots. Their first activity was learning how to control the Sphero using the Drive application. The game of Bullrush was a great hit.
Year 1 programmed the Lego WeDo crocodiles to snap and whistle last week - then they pulled them apart to build monkeys.
Year 5 students from 5/6F and 5/6W thoroughly enjoyed the first of the 2 Spehro workshops. After learning how to drive the Spheros they programmed them to perform different tasks. They played Bulrush, sent them Bowling and then designed and built chariots for the exciting Sphero Chariot Race Challenge #sphero
