Last Monday, or the 19th of August 2013, some boys had the amazing opportunity to start teaching the teachers Robotics. We taught them the history of the Intelligent Brick and how it evolved over time and how to program the robots.
Miss Rap introduced them to the robots first. She told them about ABB (Robotics company) and how robots can help with the future.
After she explained that, it was over to me to explain how to program their robots to trace a square. I told them how to turn the robot on, how to use selection on the Intelligent Brick and program it to trace a square. Most of teachers understood, but some teachers needed assistance. They tested their robots and most of the robots worked!!
Josh explained the history of the Intelligent Brick and taught them how to use the more advanced software downloaded on the computers. He was more thorough than me for I was to quick for the teachers to catch up.
So they had a play with the robots and before long, Miss Rap called them back inside the classroom to watch a YouTube video of a team competing in a Robotics competition. The teachers watched another video about a robotic Rubrik Cube solver. It was jaw-dropping that it actually worked!!!
Overall, this day was great, teaching all the teachers (including my mum)!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
