Digital Technologies Term 3

This term we have had a lot of fun using our school’s Lego WeDo robotics kits. The students have made some amazing miniature robots. It is wonderful to see the Year 4’s recall their learning from last year to help our Year 3’s learn about the programs.

Each lesson, the students have had to work in pairs to build then code their robots. When time allows, they can add extra modifications to the design or to the code to achieve different things. We have focussed on making the robots move in various ways, respond to light/motion, transmit sound/light and triggering events if the robot is off-balance or moved in a particular way.

Here are some snapshots to help demonstrate the types of robots that have been created:
