Roaming Robots

Year 1 BlogComments Off on Roaming Robots

Today in IT we learnt all about robots. We first talked about different robots we have seen in real life or on TV and what the purpose of them was. We then thought about why robots do what they do. We discussed how they are controlled and given commands from people. After familiarising ourselves with the buttons and how to command the robots we had a go at moving them around freely.

After, we followed instructions for moving them forwards and backwards.

Next, we added in left and right turns, following instructions again.

Finally, we had a go at coming up with our own commands to move to robot around a planned route. It was tricky to work out which way to turn the robot at each step.
