We’ve been getting to grips with our Vex robotics topic in St. Mary’s. Today we synched the controllers with the brains and had a go at manually controlling the robots. On Friday we’ll be using the app on the iPad to code and have a go at programming them. One of our pupils, Arkash, has a lot of expertise and understanding and he has been training people who are not so sure- especially Mrs Macaulay! There’s a picture of him here doing a trouble shooting workshop, answering questions about the electronic parts of the kit, which turned into a great session of everybody sharing their learning and experiences.
