Mechanical Woodpeckers

This morning Years 3-6 were treated to a work shop by Marco Barotti regarding his absolutely charming robotic woodpeckers, which as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival are due to pop up across Norwich over the bank holiday weekend, transforming invisible signals from mobile and wireless technology into beats tapped out onto the city’s architecture, today the chosen piece of architecture was Anglia Square.

Marco was absolutely charming, explaining the premise behind the woodpeckers and answering a variety of questions concerning them. The children showed great interest in the science and engineering behind them and were enthralled watching them in action.

All in all it was a most worthwhile morning and hopefully the children enjoyed it and learned something new, which is what it is all about.
