Children worked collaboratively in groups to set functional programmes for their robots to follow more and more complex commands in order to complete tasks.
Stage 1: Time trial racing – two laps of a race track, best time wins.
Stage 2: Monster on the loose – knocking down items
Stage 3: Park the car – everyone’s driving nightmare, the reverse park
Stage 4: Self designed obstacle course – free for all programme-fest.
The children were terrifically engaged in this activity and working well together to overcome challenges and achieve meaningful outcomes: a wonderful week of learning and fun.
