Keen programmers spent a day working with professionals from Sheffield Hallam University learning how to control a robot using computer coding.
Students from years 7 - 9 were chosen either for being one of Tupton Hall's team of Digital Leaders or for being generally interested in Computing.
They were taught how to use programming to make a mini-robot move in a variety of different directions and distances. Then came the task of racing the robots between a start and finish line - easier said than done, with several early attempts veering off in the wrong direction!
Head of Computing, Mr Dixon, Said: "The aim was to inspire students to become programmers of the future! The activity was really well received and students enjoyed the whole day - thank you to Sheffield Hallam for giving them this experience."
