Pink mBot Robot Race
Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!! We would like to have the girls race a couple of pink MakeBlock mBot STEM Educational Programmable Robots. The lead instructor owns a blue Ranger Transformable 3-in-1 MakeBlock mBot, which may make a lively appearance. Using the the wifi or bluetooth enabled editions, the girls will have a chance to learn and use programming skills. The students may also use recycled materials to design an obstacle course to challenge the robots. Tablets will be borrowed from PEO to run the robots or perhaps the Girl Guide leaders or girls may be able to use their own personal devices. This is a perfect activity to run during the NEM to meet the specific requirements for STEM and team-building badges. While the target age group is Spark, Brownie and Girl Guide, the older girls in Path Finders and Rangers may be enlisted to help out. This is a semi-private event intended for the Girl Guides, contact your local leader for more information.
