Computing Girls: Robot Workshop

Today my focus group of the 22 “most logical” girls in Year 8 took part in a one hour Robot Workshop (to coincide with National Science & Engineering Week). This workshop was the brainchild of David Kempton who travelled down from the Thales Group in Basingstoke with his cleverly-designed robots.

During the session girls had to construct their own LEGO robots from Spybotics parts, before creating simple programs using BRICX software on their computers.

It was clear that all of the girls had fun at the workshop but a follow-up session will be needed to assess if this has influenced their opinion of Computer Science.
