Liskeard School continues to promote Electronics and Engineering as 12 electronics students visited Bodmin College to build, programme and test their own robots in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Engineering and Bodmin College. Students spent a day learning how to use robots controlled from Arduino circuits. The robots were programmed and controlled via Bluetooth using an App on Android mobile phones. The focus of this visit was to study the use of microcontrollers and to learn how to programme electronic circuits.

Students took seven robots back to Liskeard School to attach and programme sensors such as Distance Measuring Sensors, Temperature Sensors and Humidity Sensors. They will be further developing these robots to do tasks such as roam autonomously or find people in rubble.

All the students had an amazing day out with one student saying, “We can now see how robots could be used in industry.”
