STEM Lego Robotics

Lesson: Design and technology

Class: Y4 Year: 2021 - 2022


Today, we had a visit from Nick who works for Lego STEM Robotics. The children began by using an app to write diiferent algorithms and create a fun ride for their lego characters to go on. After they had spent a bit of time exploring the technology and practicing how to use it, the children were set a number of challenges to complete. These consisted of making the ride go faster/slower, adding sound effects, changing the colour of the lights on the ride etc. 

After that, Nick gave the children a set of instructions to follow. These instructions enabled the children to create a robot lion that could stand on its front paws! The children loved creating their robots and programming them to do all kinds of different things!

We've had a roar-some time this morning!
