With week three of Coding and robotics under way, it was time to start on the tricky coding.
In group One of Robotics, we started off Robotics by learning how to code a robot to turn. It was the challenge of the lesson to get the robot to move in a square. The participants started out learning how to read their Robots true turning range instead on the standard 90 degrees, 180 degrees etc. Every robot will have a slightly different turning circle and it was the challenge of finding that degree of movement that would successfully make the robot move around the square.
In group Two of Robotics, participants learnt how to attach an arm to their robot and code it to pick up a cup. This was a difficult challenge (well we thought it was), but it was completed with ease.
Code Club this week continued with Scratch, with participants furthering their coding skills by making their own paint program.
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.
