The Adoptabot Challenge is an annual project in which pupils from secondary schools in both the UK and overseas are provided with a finch robot to both programme and develop creative scenarios for the programmed robot to operate in.
The aim of the project is to familiarise secondary school students in years 7 to 13 with introductory Computer Science at University level adopting an enjoyable and exploratory manner in delivery.
The project aims require students to focus on the following tasks:
- Develop a scenario
- Produce Design documents
- Update wiki
- Final presentation
The Challenge has its exciting finale on 16th March 2016 where the UK School teams are brought together at Brunel University to present their creative projects for judging by an academic panel. Teams are assessed on the originality of their scenario, coding complexity, and presentation skills as judged on the day and in their wiki web submissions. The winners are each provided with a robot and there are prizes for runners up.
We sincerely thank our sponsors for supporting this exciting project.
