Learning outcomes

Understanding of coding concepts: Teach students the basics of programming and coding concepts such as sequencing, loops, conditional statements, and variables, using block based coding.

Understanding of robotics components: Introduce students to robotics components such as sensors, motors, and controllers, and explain how they can be programmed to control the movement and behaviour of a robot.

Hands-on experience with building and programming robots: Provide opportunities for students to work in teams to build and program their own robots using LEGO SPIKE and BBC Micro:Bit.

Creative problem-solving and critical thinking: Encourage students to use their creativity and problem-solving skills to design and build robots that can complete specific tasks or challenges.

Real-world applications: Help students understand the real-world applications of Scratch and Robotics, such as automation, manufacturing, and space exploration, and inspire them to think about how they can use their new skills and knowledge to solve problems in their own lives and communities.


Information for parents

No additional software is required for this course. Students are encouraged to bring their own laptop if possible.

Camp structure

This is a sample schedule for a typical day at camp. In between each lesson there will be a 15-minute snack break, or a 1-hour lunch and play break.
10.00 - 11.00
Lesson 1
First off we'll get to know our teacher and classmates through some great mini games. Once we're all friends, we'll be introduced to our activity for the day. Let's jump in to coding!
11.15 - 12.30
Lesson 2
Now that we've had a healthy snack, we're ready to get right back into our activity. We'll carry on flexing our creative muscles by designing, coding and building our project.
12.30 - 13.30
After half an hour for lunch it's time for some offline, outdoor time. Students take part in activities ranging from inflatable obstacle course races to football tournaments, scavenger hunts to water games (fingers crossed for some sunny weather!).
13.30 - 14.45
Lesson 3
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
15.00 - 16.00
Lesson 4
It's time to finish off our project for the day and show it off to the rest of the class. Time has flown by - let's tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!
My favourite part was making the texture packs
