Coding

A gateway to practical problem solving, coding encourages student collaboration and creativity. Defining problems and seeking solutions, while enjoying the fun of controlling robotics!

'Sphero' is a bot of choice. It's instant on, durability, app interface and built in sensors make accessibility to students of almost all year levels easy!

'Swift' is a coding language found extensively in the works of app development.

Entering students into the world of the Swift language is made easy though the 'Swift Playgrounds' app for iPad. Swift Playgrounds is a key step in the progression for students to learn practical coding.

'Arduino' is a microcontroller - cheap and easily available. The myriad of additional electronic components that can be coded in to Arduino make the design opportunities almost endless.
