Latest from Year 3

This term, Year 3 will be working with our IT coach on programming and computational thinking. They will be working in pairs, using the Lego EV3 Robots, to learn how to program and move the robot around a course. The aim of the task is to “rescue” a person /object from a chemical spill. These sessions will culminate with a House Robotics competition next term involving both the Year 3 and 4 students.

Last week the students finished building their robots and began to learn the programming process that is necessary to complete the course. They are now able to program their robots to move forwards, backwards at different speeds and make their robots turn in different directions.
