Grade 7 Robot Project: A Good Example for Making within Project Innovate
Make – Control – Deconstruct (Problem Solve & understand) – Extend – Empower
All Grade 7 students participated in a week long project to redesign robots that could travel to Planet X and undertake scientific experiments that involved grabbing and scooping.
This required students in teams to work out how this could be best achieved, and then use coded MakeBlock robots to create prototypes to meet the challenge.
The week culminated in a whole grade robot march past and inter-class challenges to find the quickest, most innovative and most functional.
The students as a whole are to the congratulated on their original thinking, cooperative approaches and high level technical problem solving. And all with a bit of making fun to see their robots come alive.
