Sycamore Class have had a great morning with the Junior Stem Robotics workshop. Initally they built a basic structure and had to program it to move using a simple algorithm. Once the children had become accustomed to the equipment, they were set a challenge to create a moving monster. The children worked in pairs and built an alligator. The final product had to open and close its mouth when a sensor was activated.
It was great watching the children work and figure out how to solve problems.
Here are some of their comments about the session:
"Today I learned about STEM and algorithms." - Kai
"Today I have learned to code and co operate with a partner." - Alexia
"I had a really fun morning leaning some skills such as algorithms, coding and perseverance." - Sienna
"We had to learn how to debug and repair our creations" - Josh
