Mission To Mars
Pupils will work in pairs, one class at a time, to program robots using BBCmicrobits, a computer and inventblocks engineer kit.
How the day works?
This activity is for pupils in Years 4-6. Pupils will work in pairs, one class at a time, to program robots using BBCmicrobits, a computer and inventblocks engineer kit.
The pupils will learn how to program the Robot Vehicle to go forwards, reverse, turn and change the speed and time of manoeuvres. Control the Robot Vehicle to complete several tasks. Program Buzzers, LEDs and produce onboard warning messages. Program the Robot Vehicle to become intelligent and navigate around rocks.
How much does it cost?
A full day at school which provides three classes in separate sessions (x30 pupils in each session). Typically two sessions in the morning and one in the afternoon. This session is run by a SATRO STEM Tutor with experience in education and has undertaken Robotics Training at the ESA.
