Following on from the previous blog, our first set of fantastic students from St Richard Gwyn School, Flint, did more than make our little robot dance! While they didn’t manage to evoke the spirit of PSY and get it dancing Gangham style, they did manage to get the mini bot to do figures of 8, go round in a perfect circle (as opposed to the hexagon-esque shape some of them tried to get away with!) and all challenged each other to see who could complete the tasks set for them the quickest.
This wouldn’t have been possible without the new ROBOTC website, created by myself and my team. The website features several tutorials on programming for ROBOTC, all of which are available for public access found here at www.turingatglyndwr.org
Further additions are planned for this site, which include basic tutorials on a variety of higher level programming languages, as well as information for students about the role that computer science plays in our ever changing world.
It’s a brilliant start to the project, and hopefully it’ll just keep getting better and grow to be something for everyone to share, students and teachers alike.
