ROBOTS PROJECT: Grove Academy pupils were building robots last week with the help of the Dundee Science Centre.

The second year computing class from Grove Academy took part in the Robolab Workshop organised under the Science Centre’s Outreach scheme.

It gave the pupils the opportunity to use sophisticated Lego Mindstorm robot buggies and the children focused on programming the robots to move around and respond to special light sensors.

All the children enjoyed this insight into control technology, and it is hoped that this event, which is linked to the Curriculum for Excellence, can be repeated for other second year computing classes.

The workshop was founded by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
