Robots are highly entertaining in films and TV programmes, but youngsters from Gedney Drove End Primary School and friends from the federated school at Holbeach St Marks have a better understanding of the role of robots in everyday life.
Pupils had a topic day in which they built robots from recycled materials, using plans the children had designed in a previous lesson.
The pupils researched different robots and their features and a robotics specialist was invited to visit the school to give a fun and educational robotic workshop.
Andrew Amos from Riveting Robotics (www.rivetingrobotics.co.uk) brought in a selection of robots that could be programmed by the children using laptops.
Andrew is pictured with a group of excited pupils and a selection of robotic toys.
