Non-GCSE – Lesson 5 – Follow me!

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

In this lesson, learners discover reflective optical sensors and determine why they are useful. Learners have access to two sensors and are shown where these should be located on their buggy to have maximum benefit when they implement a line-following program that they have written. How successful learners are in this task could be assessed through a class competition where all buggies attempt to follow the same course.
