Upper Fourth Robotics Morning

On 26th June, the Upper Fourth enjoyed a Robotics Revolution workshop. They learned what the word 'robot' means (from the Czech 'robota' meaning forced labour or drudgery) and how robots have developed in recent decades. After some quick challenges, the pupils split into two groups.

On 26th June, the Upper Fourth enjoyed a Robotics Revolution workshop. They learned what the word ‘robot’ means (from the Czech ‘robota’ meaning forced labour or drudgery) and how robots have developed in recent decades. After some quick challenges, the pupils split into two groups. One group built some wheeled robots, while the other group learned to programme the same type of robot. The final challenge was to programme the robot to avoid obstacles along a course to touch, but not push, a bag of sweets with the successful group winning the sweets! The girls worked very hard and listened well to complete the tasks, compete in the challenges and learn more about robotics.
