On February 24th 2017, we organized a Wow Day for Islamic Dharwood Pau Memorial Primary School. This not only was the very first time that we held an event for over 240 students from an entire school, but was also the debut of our new activity, MiP robot's Delivery Game! In the school hall and classrooms, groups of students competed against each other by placing objects of different weights onto MiP robot's tray and controlling it with Google Blockly in our Kiddo Code app to complete the delivery. In just an hour, students had learnt the very basics of gyroscope and MiP robot's self-balancing theory, and also experienced trial-and-error, the fundamental method of problem-solving!
The essentials: our Kiddo Code app on iPad, a MiP robot, a delivery path and a number of objects to be delivered
