Monday 3rd of July @ 3:00pm

What to bring:

  • Teacher laptop with Education EV3 software installed:

  • It would be ideal to have built the robot that comes with the EV3 set. There is a book in the Education Core Set LEG45544-1 with the instructions. It is not necessary to put on every sensor (or the medium motor) as we will just use the ultrasonic and colour sensors during our session.
  • Don’t forget to fully charge your robot and this takes several hours!

Workshop Content:

  • Familiarisation with hardware and software (Including common pitfalls and confusions)
  • Line Following demonstrations using Smithton High robots
  • Beginning Programming and troubleshooting techniques

- Following a line using the colour sensor

- Detecting an object with the ultrasonic sensor
