What an amazing first term in the Griffins class. Their project discovering different aspects of Artificial Intelligence has given them so many different opportunities and understanding about how Robots are part of todays world. It included creating a robotic hand that moved, a computor programme to control a robot, their own robot design with a purpose. Discusions and debates regarding the positives and negative impact of Robots today. Their final task was to create a power point which they presented to all the key stage 2 classes in school.
