On Monday, the RAF came into school to visit our year 7 classes. Our students had a chance to explore new skills in the RAF workshops.
The activities that took place were:
Coding – Students used coding skills to programme a Sphero rolling robot to traverse an airport. Working in small groups, students planned their routes and used speed, distance and time calculations, as well as bearings and angles, to accurately steer the Sphero device through their course.
Humanitarian Aid Drone Workshop – Students used Ordnance Survey Maps to plan a helicopter flight route between several waypoints to allow for the shortest distance or time when flown by a drone.
The students had a great day!
