So, it has been a busy term.
The launch of our online learning platform has been very successful and a massive thanks to everyone who has signed up and also provided us with feedback.
We are continuing to make improvements and will adding in more audio and visual descriptions.
As always, we have been delivering a number of robot workshops for schools across the region. Including Bristol, London, Swindon and also Cornwall and other places in Somerset.
We ended the term on a high with one of our favourite events so far, a partnership event with a few schools down in Truro, Cornwall.
The kids were amazing and robot wars went down brilliantly!
So, after all that excitement I thought it would be best to wind down with something therepuetic, but also with some purpose.
I finally got round to building our very own Robomech kit:
(video will be uploaded shortly).
It was a little bit fiddly, some parts certainly need a bit of a rethink, but at the price it is - and you can grab a robot kit here - it is a very cool desktop toy for any age!
I will of course be getting back to 'proper robotics' very soon. That's the one thing I really like about half term holidays, plenty of time to catch up with machine learning and mathematical models for self driving cars that I'm looking into at the moment.
Though I really want to put and arduino rucksack on this guy with a distance sensor... it would make a very cool miniature Nao robot wouldn't it...
