Robots to the rescue

School boy using block coding to control a Dash robot
Explore how robotic devices help the Army, then work in teams using block-based programming and our Dash robots to complete a series of tasks.

Can you use a robot to complete an important mission across enemy territory?

Discover why the Army uses robots and the different uses they have, before working in small teams to complete Army-based missions using block coding and Dash robots.

Learners will develop their understanding of algorithms, and how to apply logical reasoning to write simple programs and solve problems.
