school applications
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
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
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.
