Can't wait to get to Robotics Club!
Yet another awesome session with the Friday lunch time Robotics Club at Birkdale Intermediate School. As soon as the bell rang, within seconds we had 3 kids bursting into the Tech Lab huffing and puffing! I guess they want to be first in line to have a play with the mBots before the rest of the group came quickly after.
This time we introduce the use of variables and motor controls. They were quick to grasp of how the mBot react when told to "go forward", it keeps on going! So they soon learn quickly that a "stop" command must follow after a "wait" instruction. One of the kids even figured out how to make it beep and turn on the lights as it reverses just like my car would.
Now I can't wait for the next session!
