Cedar are visited by robots

Today Cedar were given the challenge to program a set of Arduino robots. Children worked in teams of four or five to write programs using functions, loops and variables which were then downloaded onto the robots.

Each robot had its own personality! Some were very quick and others were very accurate at turning whilst some less so!

In the afternoon, each team had the opportunity to modify their robot by attaching sticks, pins and other fixtures ready to ‘attack’ their opponents’ robots.

The team whose balloon avoided being popped was the winner! There were lots of tricky challenges throughout the day; resilience and perseverance were essential skills! Well done Cedar!
