This we had week saw the two year6 classes visit for their annual Computer Science trip.
Using Lego Mindstorm they worked in groups to build their robot. Once it was built we discussed how detailed programming needs to be because if steps are missed out, it just won’t work! We looked at when programming the motors in at different speeds will effect how the robot moves.
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 using a great than / equals to command.
- Using the Touch Sensor – use this sensor to start the robot.
Below can see the days highlights, through the building process and then at the challenge table.
