Yesterday afternoon two ladies came in and talked to us about robots. The showed us Lego robots that could be linked to the computers. After that we had a go on the robots. We had a computer and plugged it in to the robot and we could type what direction it would go, the speed and how long it goes on for. We had to create a program for the robot to follow. They put out some mats and we had to try our hardest to go around the mat, following the roads.
Curtis and Liam with their robot. They even got it to park at the end. Well done!
Aaron and Finley were very excited to try their robot. Watch Finley at the end.
Josh and Jake's robot decided to play up when there was an audience watching.
It was good fun but very hard. Lots of people were very good at it. The ladies told us a lot about robots, and that they are everywhere in our homes. Things like mobile phones, computers, TVs, traffic lights and even washing machines are robots. Isn't it amazing!
