Welcome to Robotics Club

At Robotics Club we are learning about Robots. We spent the first 2 sessions working as a team to build our own robots. We followed the instructions in the manual and spent a long time on some very fiddly parts! 


Finally, our robots were built. Next steps: control them. 

 Each robot came with a remote control which was a great way to start learning about how these robots react and interact with our environment. They have inbuilt collision control using infrared sensors which is pretty cool as they don't crash but re-route. 

 The remotes are great fun but it is even better when we can use our knowledge of coding to program the robots. This is what we are working on at the moment. We have hit a few technical problems along the way but got our robots up and running in the end! 

There has been a lot of trial and error during Robotics Club, along with a lot of team work, laughs and perseverance.  

We are excited to continue finding out what we can do with our creations.
