Summer Schools: Robotic Explorers PM (age 10–12)
Thu 17 August 2017, 14:00 – 16:30 BST
Put your maths skills to use by programming a robot explorer! In this session with Jon Rosewell, you will work in a small group to program a small robotic rover. Your first challenge will be to program the rover to drive forward and backward, to turn left and right, and spin on the spot. Can you use maths make your rover drive an accurate distance? Does adding sensors to your robot let you control it more accurately? As a final challenge, can you program you rover to visit a sequence of locations – and return safely to base?
This workshop is strictly for 10–12 year-olds and is aimed at those with little or no experience of computer coding. There will be a short break during the workshop and a drink and a small snack will be provided. Students should bring their own snack if they have any allergies.
