Funding from Northumberland Council Community Chest Scheme

We are delighted to have received funding from Northumberland Council’s Community Chest Scheme. This has enabled us to buy some shared equipment for our club. With these funds we have already purchased some ‘Crumble’ kits and a Lego Mindstorm robot – and we will be unleashing them at our next event on 24th November.

The crumble controller is programmable via a scratch-like interface, and with our kit we can build a line following robot or many other projects involving switches, detectors, lights and buzzers.

The Mindstorm ‘brick’ is also programmable, we’ll look at using python for this and is fully compatible with lego.
