(This course is available to everyone)

Based at Abingdon School (Greening Court)

Girls and boys: Aged 11-17 years

This is a project-based camp aimed at participants who are familiar with the basics of coding. The camp will introduce participants to the basics of Python scripting for elementary robotics. Participants will build Bot:Bot cars, connect Micro:Bit and produce their own code for driving, remote controlling, obstacle sensing and line-following. The fully manoeuvrable cars will take on challenges on race tracks built by participants on the course.

During the follow on team project, participants will programme traffic controls and police sirens to develop their own game.

Key areas of the camp:

  • Apply and broaden Python’s Object Oriented Programming in a fun and engaging project with Micro:bit
  • Learn the elements of robotics: motors, proximity sensors and line following sensors
  • Learn to work as a team and distribute a task when building your own games
  • Explore a multitude of functionalities on Micro:bit but incorporating traffic lights and police sounds, addressable LEDs, and remote controllers

10.00am – 4.00pm on each day
