Robotics took on a prominent role at the recent Academic Day as it worked well within the ‘Future’ theme.
Teachers Dean and James had organized the Robotics club into two main projects, the upper Mathayom students were to build an interactive robot which was to act as a chaperone to visitors to the Robotics booth. This was a fully functioning robot which including moving arms, legs and had an interactive face. The body was created using foam.
The lower Mathayom created a smart living room which was populated with a variety of smaller robots automating jobs, one such robot was slicing bananas, another would pour water into the cup and there was also a foot rest which was able to approach people sitting on the sofa.
Other projects which were created by the robotics students was a mechanical sofa which was user controlled and allowed the user to move about the room depending on where they wanted to be.
We also used this space to show off our M6 student Panthorn’s work in building a drone using his expertise in this field.
The robotics booth was a resounding success and a great job was done by all students involved, especially Chavid who took on a leadership role. Teachers Dean and James have given the robotics students an excellent platform for them to develop their skills and indulge their creativity.
