This week in Year 2, we all had a day on building polar explorer rovers out of lego. To begin with, we learnt about the polar explorers and the Halley VI Research station in Antartica. We then learnt why they might use robots to help them with their research. Then, using the Lego WeDo kits, we followed instructions on how to make the polar explorer rovers. Then, using their sensor and programming them using coding, we tested to see how far away it had to be from an object before it detected it and stopped. The children loved making and investigating with the robots and had such a fun day doing so.
