DALKEITH school children, in partnership with Heriot-Watt University, have embarked on a technology programme designed to inspire the next generation of engineers.

P7 pupils at St David’s Primary have been working on a series of activities using a specially-designed robot vehicle based on cutting edge electronic technology.

The design was developed in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering at Heriot-Watt, allowing children to make the connections to university and help them in their lifelong learning path.

Youngsters at St David’s have been working co-operatively, developing their social as well as academic skills.

P7 pupil Amy Canavan has nothing but praise for the programme: “Robokid is something new to me, as I have never built a robot before.”
