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.
2/3W - put their thinking caps on to design a roller coaster ride for the Ozobot robots during Technology time
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.
2 teams from 4/5W managed to programme Blink and Bump to play "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" during their technology lesson last week
Some of the fun from the Stage 3 Sphero Olympic Activity
Take some Bee Bots, some balloons; add our very creative Stage 2 students - mix together and watch the result!
