Here is an update from our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) Coding classes where our main aim this year is to enable Brillantmont International School students to develop practical and flexible skills relating to technology. We believe that there is space alongside the traditional curriculum to develop creative and technical skills with the use of robotics and computer programming. We want our students to be aware of the exciting possibilities out there when they leave school and enable them to have the confidence to study anything they want to in the future.

To begin with, students used commands, loops, and conditional statements to create artwork and control characters on a computer screen. We have now made the leap into using the same code to control an actual robot. We’re using mBot machines made by Makeblock and they are proving to be a lot of fun. Our grade 8 and 9 students built the robots themselves and are now learning to control them using the same sort of code.

The students assembled and connected a small 16 by 8 LED screen to the back of their robots. This is a first step towards getting the robots to be more interactive and the students to realise their potential. They have all now correctly assembled light sensors, LED displays and ultrasonic sensors to measure distances. Each sensor is connected by ethernet cable to the CPU of the robot’s circuit board. Getting the wiring correct was a bit of a challenge but we got there in the end.

在接下来的几周里,我们将使用LED矩阵来拼出信息,研究机器人避开障碍物的能力,并调整传感器以使机器人遵循设定的路径。强调创造力、解决问题和团队合作,我们的编码课正在为未来的教育打开一扇门!"。

接下来的议程是--Python编程和游戏制作,以及向万圣节致敬的机器人蜘蛛!这将是一个新的挑战。

布里兰特蒙特国际学校

Brillantmont International School

Brillantmont国际学校是瑞士最古老的学校之一。它成立于1882年,目前仍由创始人家族拥有。布里兰特蒙特的特别之处不仅在于它位于充满活力的洛桑市中心,还在于它的规模,它创造了一种强烈的社区意识,一个真正的家,13-18岁的男孩和女孩在一个温暖、支持的环境中学习和发展。
