On Friday, a selection of computing enthusiasts from the Swans class spent the day working with Chris Calver from Rapid Electronics Ltd, who is a Vex Robotics Expert. The children worked together building, coding and practising manoeuvring their robots to complete this year’s Vex IQ Challenge – Next Level. The challenge involves designing, building and coding a robot to perform different tasks which score points within a time limit. A controller can be used for a section of the challenge to control the robot, whereas the children also need to code the robot to complete a task autonomously. We hope to compete against other schools in a local tournament towards the end of term. In the meantime, we will be practising daily! Thanks again to Chris for his time – the children all had a great day.
