Make the Floor Robot Go!

Create a Short Key Stage One Floor Robot Programming Video

Our second computing competition of the spring term is to create a video (by teachers or older KS2 children) of a KS1 child, or group of KS1 children, explaining to their peers how to program a Bee Bot, Roamer, or other floor robot and get it to carry out a programmed task, or solve a problem.

The video need only be a brief film showing the children explaining, creating and executing a simple program with the technology. We believe that the competition will provide an excellent opportunity for Key Stage One children to develop their programming and communication skills. Whilst the video can of course be captured by school staff, if wished, Key Stage Two children could also be used to take the video, thus providing the opportunity in the school year to promote inter-school collaboration and encourage teamwork across the Key Stages.

The closing date for submitting entries to the competition will be the end of the Spring Term.
