Gilgandra Shire Library News - April 12, 2023

LEGO® Club and Tech Club

Mixing DFYM (Designs From Your Mind) LEGO® Club and Tech Club, our program last week for each session included both LEGO® bricks and robots. Edison robots are a programmable robot which empowers students to become not just coders, but inventors, problem solvers and creative thinkers. More than a robot, Edison’s sensors and expandable build system open up pathways for learning across maths, science, critical thinking, engineering, design thinking and more. Using our LEGO® bricks, our participants created different designs on their Edison, before programming them. The Edison can be programmed to move in a variety of manners, by following lights, sound, lines or by avoiding obstacles. Our builders had a lot of fun testing out the different movement methods as well as changing the design of the Edison with LEGO®. We will continue our experimentation with Edison during our holiday programs.
