This week we decided on our design for our robot and our team name, Latymer Space Pigs!
The design was a moon with a PIG holding the latymer flag on top. Mr Hughes was trying to debug some confusing code. some people were taking measurements and designing SPACE PIGS, on tinkercad it was very fun :) We are going to try and 3D print the SPACE PIG!!!!!!!
Today we learnt how to code a robot with 2 motors, it was one of our old models, from a previous PiWars and it tested our knowledge of python. It was very fun to try out a new program because previously we had only made one motor work.
Some of us re-built last years robot because we wanted to challenge ourselves in a different way, it was fun to learn how everything worked and to test our building skills.
We also shared some of our ideas for the design of the robot.
We were programming on Python3 to make a little robot move with a motor attached to a wheel. It moved at different speeds, we learned how to 'build' a motor control board at the start of the club. Wwe talked about what challenges to access and who did their homework. We discussed some ideas for what the robot might look like.
