Emergency Bots

1 day program

Tackle a range of emergency missions using high-tech ground and air (drone) robots.

 

Learning Program Overview

Working in groups, students are introduced to coding using block code and Python programming with both land- and air-based robots. Through a series of challenges that centre around Australian emergency response situations, student groups use creative thinking and collaboration to produce solutions that fulfil certain criteria. This program will also touch on robot sensor inputs, computation/decision making and the potential benefits and drawbacks of mechanical outputs/movements.

By the end of this fast-paced introduction to coding students will have experienced what it’s like working collaboratively under time pressures, the benefits of using the Design Thinking process in rapid prototyping to “fail fast” and achieve group goals as efficiently as possible.

 

Success Criteria

•             Program a robot in a group using block-code software or Python.

•             Demonstrate understanding of the Design Thinking model as a creative problem-solving tool.
