STEM Week in P7

We were delighted to welcome April Conroy and her colleagues from the Science Skills Academy.  They brought Lego robots which we had to program to solve the challenges that were set.  Challenge 1 was to calculate the length of one rotation then apply this knowledge to a certain distance so as to not knock over the Lego figures at the end.  Challenge 2 was to mark out a course with masking tape then program the robots to complete the course.  It was a great activity and there was lots of maths dialogue going on – it was great to see.
