- Export as iCalendar

Line following is commonly used in robot navigation. In this workshop, you will be programming a Lego Spike robot (programmed using either a block-based language like Scratch, or Python) to follow a line, detect an obstacle and rescue an object from danger. We have 15 Lego Spike robots so can accommodate up to 30 children working in pairs This can be run in schools if the school can provide 15 devices with USB connections and a Chrome web browser. We will also need a space to set up an environment for the robots to explore This can be run in the Department of Computer Science. For events on campus, we will supply lunch and refreshments. This can also be combined with a campus tour and an academic lecture on Computer Science at University.
