Upon arrival at St Pat’s campus my class went into a room where we were greeted by the instructors of the robotic course. They told us about how the course was aimed at young kids in an attempt to educate them about coding and simple robotics. We separated into small groups and received little Lego kits accompanied with instructions for a complex robot. The instructors tasked us with building a Lego robot capable of driving and turning, which was much more difficult than expected. One of the instructors then showed us a race course laid out on the ground with many long stretches and painfully winding paths. Each student was tasked with getting their team’s robot through the race course, many failed attempts followed but some teams managed to triumph the course. The whole experience was brilliant, it sparked an interest within me to learn to code and create technical robots. I would like to thank Ms Peoples and Ms O’Brian for organising the fascinating day out and encouraging many students to engage with coding and robotics.
