PRE-CAMP
  • What sounds interesting about this project?
  • I find it interesting as this is a one-of-a-kind experience for me as I have never programmed a robot before.
  • What do you think you can learn from this project?
  • I'll learn more about coding and how to use technology in real-life situations to help society.
  • Any immediate questions regarding the project?
  • nil
  • First Day (24 May, Tuesday)
    • What did you do today?
      • I manoeuvred a robot through a simple course
    • What did you learn today?
      • I learned simple coding to move a robot forward, backwards and turning left and right.
    • How do you feel about today’s activities?
      • It was a bit boring learning the basics, but after learning them, It was quite simple to get the robot to do basic movement. I realised that programming a robot takes a lot of trial and error. 
    Second Day (25 May, Wednesday)
    • What did you do today?
      • I manoeuvred a robot through a simple course, then we got into our groups to programme a robot to go through a more difficult course.
    • What did you learn today?
      • I learnt how to adjust the speed and turning of the robot to compensate for the fact that it veers a bit to a side when it is supposed to travel in a straight line.
    • How do you feel about today’s activities?
      • It is tedious to get the robot to do exactly what you want but as long as you keep trying, it will eventually work out.
    • How much weight can the robot hold while moving? Could it be used as a short distance delivery service?
    Third Day (26 May, Thursday)
    • Project Sharing Sessions
      • Note down at least three key learning points
    • How do you feel about the NTU-SST Flagship programme?
    • It is fun and offers students the opportunity to learn about something they may have been curious about but never got the chance to try
      • Describe how the programme has affected your understanding of the discipline on a larger scale
      •  I will not give up so easliy when something doesn't turn out right the first time
      • Share your insights for the programme in general
