St Peter’s Farnworth visit BoltonSICT
Today we were really looking forward to our trip to St Peter’s Farnworth visiting Bolton Schools ICT, they had a little extra excitement on our way to Smithills, as they called off via Bolton Science Technology Centre first!
So once the robots were built, Mr Mills gave us a brief overview of the Mindstorm programming software, let the challenges begin.
Challenge one – to program the robot move in a straight line (but not over the black line) turn at 90° then 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.
Challenege two – was a little trickier, the groups now used the colour sensor and then had to program their robot to stop on at designated colour and turn 90°, straight on and the turn again.
If you attended this trip, share your highlights.
