Project description

With 28 “researchers” from class 6d of Pfaffenwinkel High School (Pfaffenwinkel-Realschule), we made our way to Riedenburg for the very first Robotics Week.

Two young engineers from OTH Regensburg, a technical university of applied sciences, instructed us in the initial basics of building and programming the robots. Groups of two or three were then given a robot kit from the Lego Mindstorms EV3 series. After less than an hour the robots had been assembled and brought to life.

In Riedenburg, the use of touch, color, ultrasonic and light sensors was tested with the Lego robots. The highlight of the day were the various elimination competitions that needed to be completed with the newly programmed robots. For instance, a race was carried out during which the robots were not permitted to stray from the track.

The third day began with a “modern hike” known as geocaching. After receiving information on how to use the GPS devices, several groups set off. The task was to find different waypoints, solve puzzles there and make joint decisions. As the groups returned, a small treasure awaited them on the grounds of the school camp where they were staying.

On Thursday, a trip to Regensburg was on the agenda. There, we enjoyed an entertaining guide through the old town, during which we walked across the newly renovated Stone Bridge, heard a legend about the statue of the man on the bridge, and took a lot of selfies.

After that, we returned to OTH. Here, we were provided with much information on the technical courses of study offered there.

The highlight was an extensive motor sport discussion with the head of the Formula Student Teams Dynamics e.V. of OTH Regensburg, during which all the (technical) questions of our fascinated “researchers” were answered in full.

This highly interesting, eventful and varied week was made possible through generous funding from the Frank Hirschvogel Foundation. Many thanks again on behalf of the school family for the renewed support of our STEM projects!
