As promised, here are some photographs of the robotics workshop that took place out at Llanfair Primary.
The photo below shows the main task in action.
The aim of the task is for pupils (in groups of 4-5) to decide on the correct instructions needed to guide the robot through the maze, and are given ‘direction cards’.
The instructions are broken down into precise commands, and pupils use their ‘direction cards’ and decide in their groups, how many seconds the robot will need to travel for and in what direction it should turn etc.
Pupils are shown how the robot is programmed via the software shown on the over head projector.
