What we've been up to

Is there life on Mars? 

That was what [email protected] members were given the task of finding out when we visited the National Space Centre in Leicester on Saturday 2nd December. After a quick journey through time and space in the Planetarium the challenge was set for [email protected] members to programme their own Mars rovers.

Working in pairs the first aim was to get the robots moving about, by coding them to go exactly where they were meant to, when they were meant to. We couldn't make it too easy though so there were some challenges thrown in along the way, with the grand finale being an obstacle course. Each pair had to programme their robot to navigate across Mars, dodging boulders, refuelling and finally docking back on the space station. There were some great attempts and one very speedy completed run. 

It was a great way to end a year great of events. We can't wait to see you all again in 2018! 

Restart a Heart Day

On Saturday 21st October 2017, 18 [email protected] Members, along with their families joined us for a very special event at the ThinkTank museum in Birmingham. As part of Restart a Heart Day 2017 we wanted to train as many people as possible in the lifesaving skill of CPR and it was great to see so many people come together with such enthusiasm to learn this vital skill.

Everyone picked up the skill with ease and it was wonderful to hear so many of you say that you were going to ask your schools to ensure they are part of our CPR training scheme too. After lunch there was plenty of time to explore this unique museum before heading into a private screening in the planetarium. Looking forward to seeing many more of you at Restart Start a Heart Day 2018.
