Drone, Droids and Robots

Drone, Droids and Robots

This week the computer lab was open for lunch time coding to celebrate Science week, with the theme of 'Drone, Droids and Robots.'

Many of the students showed how they want to learn how to code. As well as coding being "cool" it also helps build these skill sets:

  • Logical thinking
  • Problem solving
  • Persistence
  • Collaboration
  • Communication

Students used bee bots and programmed them to design pictures, letters and shapes. They also played a game where they had to program a 'moon buggy', changing either the direction or distance the robot needed to travel.

Shawn (4H) " When you get it correct I like watching it complete.'

Matilda (3R) 'they are cool and they move around making cute noises.'

Kaeden ' (5W) Coding is fun'

Charli (5W) 'It's educational and fun!'

Tamlyn (5W) 'Bee bots make you better at co-ordination and problem solving. You need to show persistence as if you get the term wrong you go back and do it again.'
