Explore the basics of computer coding, without the need for a computer or screen!

Duration: 45 minutes
Three children per session
Using a charming little robot, this activity introduces children to the key concepts in coding. We learn how to give the robot instructions using colourful blocks laid out on a control board. Children will learn about sequencing commands, testing and debugging their programs, and hone their langauge and mathematical skills. Taking turns and collaborating with their peers is a crucial part of the activity. There are just three children per session, which means that everyone gets hands-on experience of using the robot.
