This week, students at RoboClub were challenged to design a program that would stop their robots as close to a brick wall as possible (without knocking it down).

All students successfully completed the challenge – but not without some mistakes on the way!

The videos show positive and negative examples!

Specsavers Challenge – Demolition!

Specsavers Challenge – Perfect!

One year 10 student also programmed a robot to search for building blocks and knock them off a table, without falling over the edge itself. It worked well, but a little “manual intervention” during filming resulted in distaster!

Watch the “search & destroy” robot in action!
