STEM Workshop

This exciting workshop ran for a complete day and involved the children working in teams of three to build a robotic vehicle using LEGO Mindstorms.  The children programmed their robots to complete a series of increasingly difficult challenges - from travelling in a straight line to dancing and even playing football!  Each challenge built on the previous one and progressively introduced the use of sensors to provide feedback control to the robot.

The children learned about where computers are used and could see how essential computer control has become to our lives.  They also enhanced their teamwork, communication skills and resilience. Each team scored points throughout the day: Izzie, Tia and Grace eventually won but it was a close run contest.

Thanks to FoGS for funding the workshop - great fun was had by all.
