As you can see, our Roamers are in a sorry state. I tried to recharge the batteries today and they failed. New batteries cost £35 per roamer and unfortunately, I just don’t think it’s a worthwhile investment for us.
- Find out what the Roamers should do when they are working? (You could use the manuals in the box or online research). I would like a bit of detail in your explanation please- eg how would you use them in maths and computing?
- Can you think of anything we could replace them with (at a similar cost) that would teach similar skills? Mrs Gooderick has asked to me to make a shopping list, so here’s our chance!
Once you have answered these questions I can give you a screwdriver and you can start dismantling the Roamers and make me a display of what’s inside them and what each of the parts (should!) do.
Your next Code Club Challenge:
In Scratch 2.0, make an on screen Roamer which does everything the real one does (except moving along a real floor!). We will use this to teach other children so make it good! You should be able to find an appropriate sprite somewhere.
