The BT Education team from Adastral Park, hosted the event in Woodbridge Library, bringing together school and business into the community.

The children discussed what they thought robotics was all about, what robots look like, what sort of jobs robots can do and what they would like them to do! After busily creating some brilliant pictures to describe their robots, the pupils worked in pairs to learn to programme “Edison” robots and “Micro:bits”.

Learning how to create algorithms in each of the programming languages, the pupils soon picked up on how to make their robot’s lights flash; turn in different directions; make sounds; travel along different distances and create moving messages in light sequences!

Teacher, Chloe Nicolson said, “The children and staff had such a fantastic morning - we all learnt so much and all the children were really fully engaged for the whole session. We completed our Robot pictures on Friday and I then asked the children to draw a new picture/pictures of what they thought robots looked like now”. The school are already arranging a follow up session.

Helen Scrivener, Executive Library manager at Woodbridge Library said, “it was fantastic to host the morning’s session with Woodbridge Primary School and BT. The staff enjoyed watching and listening to all the pupils learning about robotics and getting creative. The floor space in the children’s library certainly came alive with the moving robots! We hope to welcome them all back again soon.”
