A visit from Nottingham University Robotics Department

Pupils at Ashgate Primary School were today visited by Nottingham University’s Robotics department as part of the school’s Science, Technology and Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) studies.


Pupils in Year 1 and 2 saw Spot in action, demonstrating its manoeuvrability skills and capabilities, with some children being given the opportunity to directly control Spot and explore how he works through a variety of cameras and sensors.  The robot, which has multiple real life functions including application as a search and rescue device, was put through its paces, climbing stairs, moving at pace, crouching and even self-correcting when knocked over.


Pictures of the visit are available on the Gallery Page.
