Coderdojo at The Buckingham School - Northampton University – Visits Buckingham School

Coderdojo at The Buckingham School - Northampton University – Visits Buckingham School:
he room awaited as the man with the robots arrived.  A hushed silence, whilst eager minds listened to what Scott Turner Associate professor as Northampton University outlined the plan for the evenings activities/workshop.  Teams of students were given motors, helicopter blades/wheels/ pens and tape and challenged to problem solve.  The other half of the group split into two halves to look at the two robots – RoboNova-1 and Sphero experimenting with mini challenges, bit of robot football and speed challenge.  Thanks must go to Scott and Team for visiting.
