We have a number of workshops that we can run with either students or staff. Please contact us to discuss.
Working in pairs, students are guided step by step on how to program the EV3 robot as well as how to read its sensors such as light, sound and position to gain a better understanding of the world surrounding it.
The robots can be pre-built ahead of time to ensure that maximum time is given towards coding and experimentation.
One of our favourite games is sumo wrestling, where all of our robots are placed inside a circle and the robots attempt to push each other out, with the last remaining becoming the winner.
Explore and use a range of digital systems with peripheral devices for different purposes, and transmit different types of data (ACTDIK007)
Define simple problems, and describe and follow a sequence of steps and decisions (algorithms) needed to solve them (ACTDIP010)
Explain how developed solutions and existing information systems meet common personal, school or community needs, and envisage new ways of using them (ACTDIP012)
Investigate how digital systems use whole numbers as a basis for representing all types of data (ACTDIK015)
Design, modify and follow simple algorithms represented diagrammatically and in English involving sequences of steps, branching, and iteration (repetition) (ACTDIP019)
