We're really excited to be able to host some of our gifted mathematicians this term to challenge themselves in a series of coding and logical thinking puzzles. Through using the Lego EV3 system, the students will test their abilities to work as a team to design, build and code their creations to solve set challenges.
Designing and building is no quick process, especially when your Lego kits are a little jumbled! Here are photos to update you on our progress. We have been discovering the difference between the joining pin types and how to design a worm gear system to transfer power to where it's needed through angles!
First up is the Maze Breaker. The teams have to design and build a robot which can follow the paths in a 2-D maze setup. Their builds will have to independently navigate from the centre of the maze back to the edge of the maze board, without any interference from the team. Colour, light and gyroscopic sensors are available to each team as well as the full programming suite but no remote control ability for this challenge, code only!
