It's time to Jam with technology. Caltex Fuel Your School - Tech Jam aims to introduce school children from Primary 5 to Secondary 3 to robotics, app design, e-waste and innovative sustainability through a fun hands-on workshop.

Students will work in groups to use a blended learning approach to take apart e-waste, extract usable parts and transform them into a robot to be controlled by the BBC Microbit.

Students will also design an app to control the robot.

Microcontrollers

  • BBC Microbit
  • Tablet with Andee app
  • Assorted craft materials
  • Access to consumables and shared tools

Challenges

  • “Wake-up”: enables an individual to wake up another remotely
  • “Sweeper”: tasked to sweep the floor
  • “Feed me”: enables plants to let you know when they require water
  • Open category: Students may opt to earn extra points in creativity by designing their own fit-for-purpose robot using e-waste

Judging Criteria

  • Innovation
  • Creativity
  • Collaboration
  • Inquisitiveness
  • Amount of Recyclable Repurposed

Students who show an aptitude and interest during Caltex Fuel Your School - Tech Jam 2018 will be invited to Science Centre Singapore to take part in a Hackathon come November 2018.
