Programming and Robotics

Programming and Robotics

Throughout the year, students in year 5/6 have been lucky enough to work directly with our computer technician Ric, building up their understanding and skills in programming and robotics.

The learning started with students using computer programs and resources such as excel, flash, scratch and brainpop (blockly maze), to learn the basics of programming.

Students have since worked in teams to manually put their robot cars together. They are now learning about how the robots work and how they will provide their robots with the set of instructions they will need to perform particular tasks.

The next step is for students to start writing the codes and seeing the results in their moving robot cars!

Our students (and teachers!) have already learnt a lot from Ric, and we are excited to continue learning in this incredibly important area of education.
