In the past four weeks, I have learnt how to control robots with a controller and also the physical and virtual robot. The coding is difficult to start with but once you understand, you get your head around it and begin to understand how it all works. I have learnt to have patience when the robot won't do what I want it to do and I have learnt coding and how to use robots.
I have achieved many challenges like activities on the virtual environment and picking up blocks for the physical environment. I started off with no experience with coding or robots. I am very proud of what I now know and what I have learnt. I have achieved many new skills and challenges.
In the physical world, I have learnt how to pick up blocks and how to have patience in coding the instructions, unplugging the cables, pressing play and having to repeat everything all over again. In the virtual world, I completed more than 10 activities. I accomplished so many challenges that I never knew about beforehand.
Robotics can be difficult and frustrating but it is a fun new experience! Thank you Gary and Sue.

Robotics is very enjoyable and nothing like what I thought it was going to be, which was interesting. It was great to see what people do in the world championships. I think robotics is not scary but it was very hard and challenging, but that was one of the good things about doing robotics – you challenge yourself.
I am happy that coding is one of our curriculum activities because now I know how to code, which can be very useful. I am happy with what I have achieved. Thank you Gary and Sue.

Another wonderful Maker Day Melbourne in this frosty July! Love watching kids design, think and create interesting projects using the littleBits. We'll let the video do the talking.
Look out for more Maker Day events coming up!
Yes, we can do it if we never give up! That's what we love about robotics – it teaches you to have a great amount of patience and resilience!
It is always interesting to see what our students get up to when their imagination comes into play.
The above is one very scary looking 3D printed man which the high school student designed and drew. He thinks it looks scary and we agree!
What can you create?
