    • technology


School applications l.jpg
School applications

  • D&T: the robot flower can be designed & built by school pupils during laboratory sessions

  • Electronics: design the circuits and sensors

  • Computing: for control and behaviour).

  • Mathematics: for assessing acceleration, inertia,

  • Science: measure light energy input


A behaving robot l.jpg
A behaving robot

  • make it dance,

  • make it react to stimulii ie. make it behave

    • Shrink from touch

    • Be bold, be shy

    • Change behaviour through time

      • Can learn to habituate stimulii


School uses l.jpg
School uses

  • Year 4-7: School buys kit with electronics, PIC and/or processor options and uses them to show robot interactions;

  • Year 9: D&T classes design mechnical parts following classroom guidance notes. They could be made on a laser cutter or rapid prototyper and then assembled with electronics and operated;

  • Electronics ‘A’level: students design electronics control system following classroom guidance notes;

  • Year 9-11: Computing class design behaviours, either single flowers or groups. Can also explore remote control methods, following class guidance notes;

  • Year 6: pupils design petals and fit to flower head. Perhaps changing servo motor speeds to alter reactions to stimulii and

  • Year 8-10: Mathematics pupils have known masses of each mobile part, and calculate accelerations and energy inputs etc. Again a class guidance note will suggest options.
