This week in Robotics, the participants continued on with learning how to code their robot to follow a line. This session focused on coding the robots to distinguish between a black and a white line. The challenge for the session was for participants to get their robot to follow a circle and a zigzag line. They first needed to test their colour sensor to get the correct colour reading of the black lines, then code the robot in a way that for as long as it was reading black, it would continue on. The participants enjoyed coding this because they could see that if they used a loop in their code, that the robot would forever continue to do that task. Once they figured out how to code the line, it was then up to coding the robot on the black lined circle. The circle was a tad more difficult as participants had to change the degree on which the robot turned and searched for lines. In the end, everybody was incredibly impressed by what they accomplished.
Welcome to Code Redlands
Code Redlands is a coding 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.
