On Tuesday the 23rd of May 2018, SDS STEM Engagement Adviser Emma Chittick and other people from Skills Development Scotland came to our school to meet with the S1s in the Social Area.

Their goal was to teach us about new jobs and how the world will change throughout our lives.

To do this, we were shown a PowerPoint and then had to programme LEGO Mindstorms robots to follow our commands. After that, we had a robot battle-ish thing where we had to programme them to go forwards and then back to us without crashing into any other robots. Some people were better at it than others.

Thanks to everyone who came in to make the afternoon so useful and enjoyable.
