This term our participants are looking at electricity, circuits and Makey Makey’s.
Starting out small we are learning the basics of circuits and working up to making our own Makey Makey musical instrument.
This week, we learnt the basics of wiring a circuit by making our own game controllers from copper tape, wire, cardboard and a load of imagination.
This term we are taking a leaf from Robocup Junior Rescue and our partcipants are rescuing people from a deadly toxic spill!
Their robot must be able to autonously make its way along a maze it has never navigated before, navigate obstacles, bridges, intersections and finally locate the victim and get him out of the dealy spill.
Our participants are learning new coding skills, like two sensor line following, PID, casewhere programming and myblocks.
Let’s hope they make it in time!
Welcome to Code Redlands
Code Redlands is a STEAM and robotics program dedicated to creating a an environment where we can explore, learn and create. With Digital Literacy a new focus for the future, we want to augment digital literacy skills by offering space, technology, and facilitators. We hope to equip the next generations of Queenslanders with STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics) skills to find their own place in an increasingly digital world.
Redland Libraries offer School Holiday Activities throughout the year for children aged 8 and above.
