Pupils Captivated By Crackley's Robotics Day
Pupils at Crackley Hall were captivated by the school’s ‘Robotics Day’ with everyone enjoying learning about the world of STEM thanks to Steve Hubbard from Robotfun.
The day began with an assembly where Steve shared many different types of robots including a Robot based on Theo Jansen’s self-propelling robots strandbeests.
Across the day pupils took part in workshops. Upper school children got hands on with programming in python while the Lower School enjoyed programming with a brand-new robot Indi using colour cards to control the robot’s direction of movement.
The day was designed to engage pupils in engineering and science through fun, practical experiences and Emma Malcom, who organised Crackley Robotics Day, said, “The children had great fun learning about programming, working together to make sure their robot followed the right commands. They really enjoyed the sessions engaging with the robots enthusiastically. We have had a fantastic robotics day.”
Many thanks to the PTA for funding the day.
