We’re programming our robots to interact with the elements on the Quidditch field.
We’re also working on creating appendages to manipulate the Quaffles, trap the Snitch, and score lots of points.
It’s exciting to try out our ideas on the real field.
Our groups are all working on very different approaches to the task. Here are some of the ideas.
We are using our CAD skills, and 3D printing all sorts of mechanisms.
We also have the final tally from the fish fry!
Thanks everyone for the great support! This was the best one yet.
We’ve been hosting Mike Mundell’s Fish Fry Fundraisers for the last few years, and they are always delicious and a lot of fun.
We had our robot set out for a demo
And our Quidditch table out for people to see
The food was delicious!
many thanks to the chefs!
Apart from fish and chips we had coleslaw and beans and lots of desserts
Thanks so much to the K-Bots and their families for helping sell tickets, donating drinks, sides and desserts, for setting up, serving and cleaning up, and helping run our demos.
We’ll have another Fish Fry in the new year. Hope to see you all there.
We were pretty excited to see our Quidditch field arrive today.
We looked at the Quaffle dispenser
And made sure Boebots could drive on the lexan.
We took measurements to decide how to avoid the beaters
Our groups got to work, some are planning, others are prototyping.
While we worked today we had a visitor from the UK come to see what our program is all about. He’s specializing in hands on learning, which is what we do around here!
We’re having fun and learning a lot!
We met today to learn about teamwork…
And when we returned to the classroom we were met with quite a sight!
Dumbledore came to visit and give us a challenge!
Everyone got sorted into their houses
Silverlock, Roboclaw, Sprocketdore, Talonchain, Dragonhammer, and Goldengear.
Owls delivered invitations to compete in the Interhouse Quidditch Cup.
Teams got bracelets in their house colours.
And got started learning more about each other, reading the game rules, and brainstorming.
We gathered together to discuss the rules and to see the CAD of the field in 3 dimensions on the big screen.
We got our kit of parts which included brand new Boebots which we had to assemble.
By the end of the night some houses got their Boebots moving! Such great progress.
We had a trivia game at the end of the session. Unfortunately we’re not all up to speed on our Harry Potter financial knowledge.
Look forward to more trivia for house points next week!
Game Hint #10?
