How to use physical computing devices to enhance the key stage 2 science curriculum (and make interactive Christmas decorations!)
Tuesday Nov 13, 2018 from 1:15PM to 4:30PM
Hosted by Centre for STEM Education, University of Hertfordshire
During this workshop, we'll examine how to use physical computing devices, including the BBC micro:bit, to facilitate cross-curricular projects involving elements of both the computing and science curriculum at Key Stage 2.
Throughout the session, you will undertake a range of engaging, hands-on tasks, which can be used within the classroom to enhance pupils' programming ability and scientific understanding. A range of resources will be provided to take away, in addition to further examples of projects covering additional areas of the curriculum. Due to the time of year the course is running, we'll also examine ways interactive Christmas decorations can be produced by pupils.
In order to implement the course content within your school, a class set (15 devices) is available for attendees to borrow for approximately six weeks following the course. There is no additional charge for this service and further details are available on request.
