High School class programs robots–differently
There are lots of “high school kids program robots” story out there. What I liked about this one was that (alright, they’re using IPRE robots, or I wouldn’t have even found it the examples weren’t the traditional maze-following or battle bots. Making robots synchronize to play “Carol of the Bells” or follow anything blue is fun and different — and particularly cool for being high school.
It wasn’t hard to tell what time of year it was in Vern Ceder’s computer programming class Wednesday. Canterbury students were busy programming robots, and two of three belonging to junior Ginger Hoade were playing “Carol of the Bells.” Over and over again. At slightly different octaves. At slightly different times.
