Home Project - Robots

Well done to all the children (and parents) who created a robot during the holidays. We have been astounded at some of these creations - some as big as children, others that move and ones that even come with accessories! We hope you had lots of fun designing, planning and making your robot together - we can't wait to see what you make next! Photo coming...
