Since the academic year 2018/19, we have been working hard to consolidate the complementary subject ‘ROBOTICS and PROGRAMMING’ as a source of new inspiration, but also motivation, in the revolutionary world of 21st Century Learning.
1st and 2nd primary
Scratch Jr: Coding for young children.
With ScratchJr, young children (ages 6-8) can program their own interactive stories and games. In the process, they learn to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively on the tablet.
3rd and 4th primary
Lego Wedo 2.0 is the following step in our robotics and programming project. It supports a hands-on, “minds-on” learning solution that gives students the confidence to ask questions and the tools to find the answers and to solve real-life problems.
We divide the project into four phases:
• The Explore phase
• The Create phase
• The Test phase
• The Share phase
5th primary – 3rd ESO
The MINDSTORMS® EV3 LEGO® Education programming app and brick provide middle school students with hands-on opportunities to develop their creative and problem-solving skills. EV3 Programming and the EV3 intelligent brick combine building and coding to help students learn programming principles, engineering, teamwork, and persistence.
Designed for touch devices, this learning app communicates with your EV3 robot via Bluetooth to offer a truly interactive experience that students will find intuitive, engaging, and fun.
We use robots from 5th primary to 3rd ESO as a part of our project in the subject ‘Robotics’.
At the same time, we train our pupils to participate in the First Lego League every year. Once they take 3rd ESO (Technology), one team selected among all the students represents us in the tournament.
