Over the last term and again in this one our students have had the opportunity to work coding or programming Ozo-bots to follow a course and travel in set directions. Not only has it been challenging but also great fun.
Recently we had Mandy – from A.C.U – in our class to assist the children program their Bee – Bots. They were to travel in a set course with a pin attached to the front of their black and yellow robots in order to burst a balloon which they had taped to a piece of paper.
And yes we had a few balloons pop-off!
It was a real collaborative effort and one which was enjoyed and valued by all.
We also placed the bee – bots on courses where the bot could make random choices so the students had to calculate the chances of it going in a particular direction – It was both challenging and most interesting.
