Engineering at Auroa School

As part of the STLP programme, I have the opportunity to visit schools in the area and see what they are up to in regards to science. So last week I popped out to my own to see what cool science related things were already happening. I ended up spending most of the day with Mr Spice and a group of year 7-8 students as part of the school technology programme. Currently these year 7-8 students are using Ardunio to learn about electrical circuits. They are using Tinkercad to design body parts for robots, which they will then 3-d print. If their designs are successful, the parts will slot together like a 3D jigsaw. They will then build and programme the Arduino circuits to perform simple commands as a robot.
