Ivy Reach: Root Robot Programming Course

February 9, 2024

As part of our Ivy Reach initiative, we successfully completed a Root Robot Programming Course with fourteen Year 5 pupils from Park Hill Junior School. During the programming project, the pupils were taught to apply mathematical concepts of lines and angles to programming floor robots; a practical way to combine geometry with programming skills. This integration allowed students to understand how mathematical principles can be used to control the movement and navigation of robots. They thoroughly enjoyed programming the root robot to draw shapes and letters.

We organised a special celebration and prize giving event for the wonderful and enthusiastic Year 5 pupils where they made a short presentation to Miss Pendleton about their learning journey. A special thanks to the Year 9 pupils Ahaana P R, Sophia R, Emily R and Anika J for their help during the sessions.
