Lego Technology Club

Lego Technology Club runs every Wednesday after school. 

In the Lego Technology Club children will learn how to program the EV3, NXT and RCX robots to work traffic lights, barriers and fairground rides. They will also learn about different types of sensors and how these can be used in their programming.

Children also get to use Lego kits that they can run by solar power, water, wind or alternatively by generating their own energy. 
 

We have invested in the Lego WeDo Construction Kits so that we can open the club to younger children. This year we have been building racing cars with some of our Year 3 children. Two teams have designed and built racing cars then tested there speed by racing them against each other. They have tested their cars by changing the size of the wheels and racing them on different floor coverings to see what difference this makes to the speed of their vehicles.

 

In previous years we have also made stop animation movies. The children enjoyed building their own sets out of lego bricks; then filming scenes with the ipads, using the Aardman stop animation app. They then transferred their animation into the imovie app, where they were able to add sound effects and voice overs. (This has now been moved to Ultimate Friday).

 

First Lego League (FLL) Challenge

 

These events are always a huge success, with children competing from all over the country.  Each Challenge has three parts: the Robot Game, the Project and the FLL Core Values. Teams of up to ten children, with one adult coach, participate in the Challenge by programming an autonomous robot to score points on a themed playing field (Robot Game), developing a solution to a problem they have identified (Project), all guided by the FLL Core Values.

For the project the teams have to:

 

  •  Identify a problem.
  • Design an innovative solution to the problem they select.
  • Share their problem and solution with others.

 

The children thoroughly enjoy the experience and learn so much from it.  Our school have always done very well in these challenges and over the years have come away with trophies for: Best Robot Design, Team work (Core Values), Presentation and Robot Game.
