Using the same ingredients which we have learnt from before, would you be able to make your own song? Here’s the task: Circuit Touch > Sequence > Buzzer Try to make 5 different sequences, which are triggered by the 5 parts of the Quirkbot. &nb... read more
In order to to this, we need to use another block of code, called Sequence. But let’s learn the song first ;)! The Circuit Touch decides which trigger will start Hot Cross Buns, and which trigger starts One-a-pen-ny Two-a-pen-ny. The s... read more
We hope you enjoyed the last session – your Quirkbot has missed you! If you remember, last time we looked at using the Quirkbot as a controller to play some maths games. Then, we started to look at using the Quirkbot as an instrument. We’ll in... read more
Just before we say goodbye, could you please click on this link and answer some questions? Feel free to come back to this page, to check on the exercises, and refresh what we have learnt today.

So far, you have used the MakeyMakey with a code that we gave you. Can you make your own version? You will need: Left, Right, Up You played Mario, and you made your own code for the Maze Runner. So far, we have used the Left, Right and U... read more
Let’s see what goes on inside the code. You can read about Circuit Touch (3), Key Press (19) and LED (5) on your Handout.
Welcome to the first session of Maths Music Robots! We are really pleased to have you here, you’ll have lots of fun today. You should have a MakeyMakey already, it looks like a videogame controller. Have you connected the USB? Have the light... read more
