Visit to Hartwell, Uk

On 19th December 2013 the  junkbot project visited - Class 4 of Hartwell Primary School, Northamptonshire, UK.

The session was split into two.

The first part was building a drawing junkbot  from cans, small electric motors, broken propellers, wires, pencils, pens, and drinks cans. An example from a previous group is shown to the left.

More details on the activities/session plans can be found at:

The second part two Robonova robots (an image to the left taken from an earlier event) and a Sphero were  were brought in. Two groups use the Robvova (robots to create a dance routine, which they wrote down the dance routine to be repeated later. They then had a 'dance off'. The third group used the Sphero ( and they both programme them (using an App Sphero Macrolab on the iPad) and directly controlled it using another App (OrbBasic)on the iPad.
