This superb introduction to control technology will take your child on a gripping adventure to save an endangered forest. The adventure takes place on the planet of Oglo. The last remaining rainforest is threatened by dangerous chemicals produced by the wicked scientist Gomez, aided by his evil robots. Through a variety of settings and activities children must thwart Gomez and help save the planet. Nine fully narrated interactive activities. Here's a sample of them: Lifting the Heavy Box: In this challenge, children have to use the lifting machine to load Dr Esme's box into the back of the hoverheli. After connecting the wires, they must use the on-screen computer to control the machine. South Temple Maze: Dr Esme's machine, Rover, needs to be programmed so that it can find its way through the South Temple Maze. A control panel enables children to give commands to Rover. A map of the maze helps. The Chemical Store: In this task, children need to make sure that the poison trucks are moved safely to the recycling tank without polluting the river. In part one, the mouse is used to carry out one instruction at a time. In part two, pupils need to write a program for the computer to control all the lifts and doors in the correct order. Switch the Robots Off: In this challenge, pupils are under attack from a robot. A set of coloured lights can be used to deactivate the robot. Pupils need to devise a control program to ensure the lights are switched on and off in the correct order and for the correct duration. Building the Bridge: This task involves controlling Gomez's machine to build a bridge to the island. They must work out how to build the bridge by dropping stones one-by-one onto the supports.
