On 17th June, students had the opportunity to take part with Vidura from VSTEAM education. Students learnt to code using BBC Microbits enabling them to control LEDS, sound and small robots. Students developed problem solving skills and worked on how robots are used in the workplace, identifying how automation can improve work place practice.
Students showed an interest in how the robots worked and were able to program a robot to avoid obstacles around it. The course was a practical opportunity to look into how coding controls what’s around us. Students mentioned: –
“It was good, because some jobs you’re required to have these skills.”
“These will be good for schools, so they can learn digital learning”
“It was fun to code a robot and to make music”
