PRIMARY COMPUTING RESOURCES FOR COMPUTING MASTERY

iCompute iDo WeDo

The 'Hour of Code™' is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming

WHAT THIS ACTIVITY TEACHES

This teacher-led lesson activity, adapted for the Hour of Code, provides opportunities to explore physical programming (robotics).  Children design and build models using construction bricks and bring them to life with code!


Using a visual drag-and-drop programming environment and LEGO WeDo parts (motor and hub and optional sensors), pupils learn that physical systems can be programmed and controlled using algorithms and code.


Includes a step-by-step activity plan, associated teacher and pupil resources and ideas for extension and enrichment to take learning further.
