IBM The Smart Brick.

Sixth class pupils had an enjoyable day in Holy Family GNS programming Lego bricks. Children from various schools had to create a robot using a programmable brick. This robot was programmed to respond to sound, light etc. and had to complete various tasks such as scoring a goal! This was part of Eigse Week and was sponsored by IBM. It was great fun for all concerned.
