Ozobots on the Tinker table

Today we got Ozobots, little robots controlled by colour coding.  For 30 mins groups of four could tinker with these Ozobots. The groups created codes to make them zig zag, twirl, do the tornado move and use the nitro boost to make them go really fast.  The groups had to problem solve, think, discuss ideas, experiment and be creative in order to get a successful outcome. Ask questions about this tonight at home.

Purpose of our time at Tinker table: 
Cultivating curiosity, creative thinking, problem solving and coding to enable future skills… weekly sets of technology for students to explore
