Over this year with have been learning about coding, coding is when you place a series of ‘blocks’ or instructions and if you place these blocks correctly you can run various programs.
In the second term the 5/6 students have been using that knowledge of coding in our robotics program by working with a robotic kit called Spike.
This robotic kit allows you to build various types of robots and when we create the correct code you can get them to perform various functions including: dancing, sit ups and even a weather forecaster!
The students, in addition to the coding, are learning various skills including: design and construction skills, teamwork, solving various problems and following build instructions - they are also having some fun as well!
Check out this awesome video showcasing the students coding and building skills!
