What we've been up to

Vlogging Ahoy! 

In Bristol on Saturday 28th April we had a vlogging workshop like no other, at the SS Great Britain ship in Bristol. Working in teams, Teen Heart members recreated scenes from the film Titanic in their vlogs and got to grips with lighting, sound and editing.

They created vlogs on their favourite topics from travel and hobbies to MTV cribs. They also learnt how to plan vlogs, present on camera and create a YouTube channel. We look forward to seeing what vlogs they go on to make. Big thanks to everyone who liked and subscribed to this workshop! 

 

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!
