The masjid in Ramadan time gets crazy busy. So many people come to pray taraweeh and they all leave their shoes on a flimsy shoe rack that can barely hold them. Sometimes, in all the chaos, people lose their shoes or even go home with the wrong ones!
Your task is to design a storage robot that can better organise people's shoes in the masjid, so that it stays clean and so people always get their shoes back quickly and correctly!
Group: Individually or in groups of 2.
Learning aims: Design skills, introduction to modern technologies, problem solving skills, creative thinking, consideration of positive impact and change through technology.
You'll need: Youtube, Paper and pens.
Let's Get Started!
1. Watch these exciting videos to get a sense of what robots are capable of!
2. Design your storage robot. Think about what it looks like and how it works. How does it maintain all those shoes and monitor who they belong to?
3. Draw a sketch of your robot and colour it in!
4. Send a picture of your ramadan robot to firstname.lastname@example.org ! We'd love to see what you've created, and share it with the Islam Imagined community.
