Drones and robots visit Haselworth

The BAE Systems STEM Roadshow came to visit Haselworth on Monday 15th March. This was sponsored by BAE Systems, the Royal Navy and the Royal Airforce. The show explored the world of drones, the technology behind them and the multifarious uses that they are currently put to and the possible uses for the future. The second part of the show focused on computing and control systems that all modern technology is built around. The final part of the show featured a very special robot. The children had a fantastic time watching  a drone fly around the hall and looking at real time images being relayed onto a big screen. Some of the lucky ones even got to fly the drone themselves. Working out computer coding and the binary system was another activity the children took part in as well as pitching their wits against a tai-chi dancing robot!
