EC sports activity day took place on Thursday 5th July. Everyone in the EC section participated in a variety of energetic activities to show off the skills that the children have learnt this year in Physical Education. Children worked on 9 different areas of activity including the parachute to show off their team building skills. The parents enjoyed watching the children practising their aiming skills and on the large apparatus there were demonstrations of climbing, balancing jumping and rolling. During the morning activities parents were impressed to see the pupils competing in the egg and spoon race as well as working together to pass the ball or to fill the water bucket. Thanks to all the EC staff for encouraging the students to participate with such enthusiasm and to the parents who attended to cheer on their children.

Android Controlled Robot

Year 8 Hackers and Makers club members Mikhail Rudchenko and Ronan Varsani have made a fully independent robot, controllable from an Android mobile phone.

Using small stepper motors and wheels from a hacked lego mindstorm robot, the boys have produced a powerful remote controlled device.

A raspberry pi computer is used to receive the blue-tooth commands from an android phone. The boys used the python programming language to process the signals and then provide output to the powerful stepper motors that drive the wheels. Two small 9 volt batteries provide the power for both the raspberry pi computer and motors.

Mr Scales said this is exactly what the hackers and makers club is all about. Combining technology such as Android phones, Raspberry pis and python programming with some basic electronics can lead to some great projects such as this one.
