Pupils from The Unicorn School years 4 and 5 classes have teamed up with engineers from Faringdon Community College to build robotic dogs using Lego �Mindstorms� kits to complement this term�s creative curriculum entitled �The Rise of the Robots�.

Two teachers and a technician from FCC are delivering the programme which runs for 5 Tuesday afternoons at The Unicorn.

�The aim of these courses is to bring engineering into the classroom in a fun and interesting manner�, commented Denis Scott, FCC course leader, �Within the Lego �Mindstorms� module, the pupils build a robotic dog and learn the programming language necessary to control the robot in the completion of a number challenges.�

This module is linked to the Keystage 2 National Curriculum with other programmes available in podcasting, mechanisms, electronics and animation.
