Being able to code is a desirable skill for students planning STEM futures. This workshop can help students get a head start in coding – both in Scratch and Arduino – while working with robots.
Scratch is a free online programming language designed to help young people get started with coding using a simple drag-and-drop interface. Students will explore how to program their robot’s motors and sensors in order to solve a series of challenges. They’ll also have time to discover opportunities for creating their own programs and robots using Scratch or Arduino.
Scitech provides computers and robots for student use. Equipment is transported in trolleys so ramp or lift access to the venue is essential. The workshop requires desks, chairs and access to electrical power outlets. Students will be required to move around during the workshop, so a large classroom or hall is strongly recommended.
