This practice contains one of nine challenges for robotics social clubs.
Making decisions effectively is critical for successful relationships. In the Australian Curriculum, students develop personal and social capability as they learn to:
- make decisions in challenging situations
- recognise factors that influence decision-making
- consider the consequences of group decisions in different situations.
The robotics challenge in this practice targets and scaffolds students' ability to make decisions as a group, in a way that is fair for all group members:
- Silly walks
This challenge takes 1–2 sessions of approximately 45 minutes.
If you need to build a robot, begin with the starter challenge in the Communicate effectively: Robotics social clubs practice. You could also provide students with pre-made robots.
