Robotics Sumo Competition
mBot Sumo is a contest where two autonomous mBot robot contestants try to push or flip each other out of a circular ring. The first robot to touch the floor outside of the ring loses. The last robot remaining in the ring wins the round. The robot that wins the most rounds wins the contest.
On Thursday 20 December 2018, we ran a mBot sumo competition between the robotics after-school program’s kids. We invited the parents to watch the matches and encourage their kids to win.
After School Programs
The kids had great fun at our after school program! They build fire rescue robots, soccer playing robots and ended with a big sumo competition.
Coding and Robotics School Holiday Programs
Each program was 8 hours over 2 weeks, kids learnt computer science concepts such as (Sequencing, Input and Output, Variables, Selection and Repetition) and made their own games, animations, stories and arts. They improved their computational and creative thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills through many interactive projects. In the robotics program, kids learnt mechanical and electrical components such as Motors, Ultrasonic Sensor, Light Sensor, LEDs, Buzzer and Bluetooth Connection. They made their own projects that they solve real-world problems like the fire alarm, maze, and a cleaner robot.
3D design and printing workshop
In a partnership with Thomastown Library, Robofun walked through the basics of 3D modelling in Tinkercad, from adding and grouping 3D shapes to creating and duplicating patterns. We taught kids how to use Tinkercad tools to create more complex geometry and print 3D models.
Robofun Programs at Fitzroy Community School
Robofun focuses on paired programming to develop kids’ communication and teamwork skills and it encourages the good sporting spirit through competitions between kids.
Cancer Fundraising at Melbourne Polytechnic/Preston Campus
Robofun supported Orange Pidgeon Adult Wish Foundation in its fundraising at Melbourne Polytechnic by holding a Robot Soccer Game.
