This half term, we have focused on programming and creating a map for a bee bot to travel around. We discussed the need for an object to travel and decided upon needing a vehicle to deliver items for the school. We worked in groups to plan a map from the school to various other places including shops and houses.
First, we planned and sketched a map of what we wanted to include.
After settling on a map, we measured how far the bee bot travelled with each programme and had to scale our map to the appropriate size. We then sketched the map onto multiple A3 sheets to test the size and copied the finished map onto a large roll of paper.
We all attempted to programme the bots to travel around each other’s maps. It was more difficult than it looked but we all managed to programme the bot correctly eventually!
