P7a Experiment with Driverless Cars

Today Primary 7 have been taking part in a STEM workshop. The focus was on the new technology that is required for cars to work without a human driver. The class thought about the different applications of this technology and the different skills that are needed to be able to use this technology effectively.

The class spent time programming robots to move carefully around the block. They had program movements and sounds. We looked at how mathematical symbols are used in programming and were able to apply our own maths skills to the task.

Finally we looked at how new technology is changing how different jobs are done and where technology is currently being used effectively in Shetland.
