Last year I was very fortunate to get the chance to work with the M.E. Program in the Hunter region of New South Wales. With the need for more Engineering and Technically trained employees in the Hunter region, a group of industry partners got together to form the ME program and look at ways of supporting schools and helping students experience and explore the career opportunities that are possible in the manufacturing industry.
Amongst other activities, they put together a 'Living Toolbox' of lessons and resources that highlight various aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. I was asked to help out with a number of Robotics focussed videos that touched on each of these areas.
I did videos for the following topics
- Simple Angles
- Calculating speed
- Regular polygons
- How ultrasonic sensors work
- How Light sensors work
You can see the Living Toolbox and all its fantastic lessons here (not just robotics)-
