Robotics March 2019
I love LEGO. I mean, other fine products are also available but when LEGO is put in front of me I know that the pieces will fit and the device will work. Our Robotic challenge day centred on groups of children from two schools called St Joseph’s(!) and Acklam Whin working with Mindstorms and LEGO Boost kits. But this wasn’t just building LEGO, they had to work as teams and the focus on what that means to be effective was established at the beginning and referenced throughout the day. It was a tall order to get their challenges to a state of completion by 2.30pm but as you can see from the pictures below we have some pretty committed pupils and most of the robots were being programmed by the time we had to stop.
