In their Active Planet IPC unit, Year 4 is examining the changes in our world as part of its natural processes. The students learned about natural disasters such as earthquakes and are currently designing their own rescue robots to help out people in need.
This year for Hour of Code, the children (and some of the teachers!) learned how to program Sphero robots to conduct a 'rescue.' Under the guidance of Mr Ricketts from the secondary school and Mr C, the students produced some very creative robot control programs and showed a lot of resilience when troubleshooting their code.
