Fun With Robotics

Mr Bienvenu Mbanga in action

On Tuesday and Wednesday, 28 and 29 September, Union educators Mrs Helane Keyser, Mr Stephen Bezuidenhout and Mr Bienvenu Mbanga, attended the Level 1 Training Course for LEGO Mindstorms EV3 in Graaff-Reinet.

During this 2-day workshop – presented by Hands On Technologies’ robotics trainer Mr Danie Heymans at the Profcon Resort – the teachers were introduced to and shown the programming possibilities of the Mindstorms EV3 robotic kits.
The teachers were then able to actually build robots from the robotic kits and code them.
Following the workshop, Union received a donation of five EV3 robotic sets, 3 chargers, 2 teaching guides and a roll-up training mat, courtesy of the Care for Education Foundation.
We look forward to seeing the implementation thereof at Union!
