Lego MindStorm with Devonshire Road
What a great way to finish this half term, we had both year6 classes visit from Devonshire Road Primary.
Class 6H had extra excitement as their bus broke down on the way to our centre! The classes were split into groups of four, their first challenge to overcome was to build both the sides of the robot simultaneously.
After lunch the programming challenges began:
Challenge1 a brief overview of the Mindstorm programming software and the aim was to program the robot to get as near to the wall but not touching. The pupils had to consider distance travelled, speed and wheel rotation, they could only have three attempts. You can see in the videos how successful the groups where.
Challenege2 was a little trickier as the groups added a colour sensor and then had to program their robot to stop on a designated colour.
Both classes worked collaboratively, learning new skills from each other – both the pupils and staff agreed that they had a great day.
