Lego Mindstorm with STOC

This week saw two year 6 classes, from St Thomas of Canterbury visit our training centre, and what a fabulous two days we have had.

Using Lego Mindstorm the pupils worked¬†in groups to build their robot and then work into pair for the programming challenge. We discussed how detailed programming needs to be because if steps are missed out, it just won’t work!

The Table Challenge:

  • Using the colour sensor to sense a black line, reserve slight and change direction.
  • Using the ultra sonic sensor to detect an object, again reserve and change direction.
  • Having then added an additional touch sensor, use this to start the program and make it run for 20 seconds !

See the highlights from both visits below, would be great to hear your comments if you attended these days!
