Educational Lego

Last night we practised Agile software engineering using Lego.   Stephen (who supervises Object Oriented Programming) is a certified Scrum Master and so led a session explaining the Scrum process.  We then put it into practice doing short 5 minute sprints building a Lego themepark.

Phase 1 was to build the project backlog.  We did this with postit notes stuck to the wall.  There were some logistical issues about getting everyone near enough to see though.

Here’s a picture of one team mid-sprint

Here’s (some parts) of the finished theme park.  Note the self-driving car with ‘built-in’ RFID tag.

And here’s my favourite model: its a travelling salesman who is holding the solution to the P=NP problem:
