The robots are coming!

3rd May 2019
Mr Honey has been busy setting up the trial of the new 'Marty' Robots in school. The robots have been provided for a trial before we commit the hard earned PTA fundraising money into purchasing the set for the school. 
Kestrels class had great fun using the commands to programme the robots to dance, walk and wiggle around the tables. One robot even found its way down the corridor to the office to ask Mrs Horan for a cup of tea!  We are now working on setting up a special version of ‘Scratch’ to programme our own commands for the robots.
The trial has had a very positive start and if this continues, the 'Marty' Robots will become part of our school resources, enabling us to enrich the robotics section of the computing curriculum for all our children at Frieth.
Thank you to the PTA for agreeing to the expenditure for the purchase of the robots.
