This week we departed from the robots focus we have had this term to take a break and look at the heart of what makes robots do what we want them to do, the code.
The students participated in the international global movement Hour of Code™. The ‘Hour of Code™’ is an initiative by Computer Science Education Week[csedweek.org] and Code.org[code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
Some Grade 5/6 students got real hands-on with robots this week and were working together to build an Otto-Bot. It must have been pretty interesting because even Elf and his Northern Hemisphere friend had a go during the night.
