Maybe you have been thinking of enrolling your class or your school for our competition but were thinking:
- We don’t have an IT teacher.
- We don’t know how to code.
- We don’t know how to solder wires and do all those complicated things you need to make robots work…
The great news is that you need NO experience in any of those things! You do NOT have to be in IT or a specialist to create your own robot. Blackpoolrobo is a competition for Lego Mindstorms and they have very detailed instructions that can be followed by anyone. If you are a school wishing to enrol, you can very well involve your mathematics teachers if you have no IT teachers.
The second piece of great news is that volunteers from the IET and Blackpool & the Fylde College will help you with everything that you need to know about making your robots. Apart from the detailed videos that you can find online, the Blackpoolrobo team will provide support to you and your school.
Register now and learn something amazing along with your students!
