As part of the third year group project, BSc Business Information Technology student Scott Grigor and his team provided Pop-Up Science Robots at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, giving children the opportunity to control Lego robots via their own code.
The project involved creating robot activities aimed at children 7-12, using Lego Mindstorm robots and Arduino (an open source programming environment), at the National Museum of Scotland on the 28th and 29th March. Scott was the project manager responsible for planning and controlling the entire project, working with students from different backgrounds and areas of study. Communication was a key aspect of the project, with Scott being the team’s main point of contact with the client, who were science festival staff and National Museum of Scotland staff.
Scott is currently doing an internship at Skyscanner.
