Programming the future

Students from Brockton Primary school spent an exciting morning exploring tiny computers called Microbits. The students were set 10 different computing challenges on the machines, which boast 25 lights, buttons and a movement sensor. The challenges ranged from getting a three-wheeled buggy to move, to creating a textile cushion that lights up when shaken. Richard Smith, from AmazingICT, ran the session and was impressed with the children’s problem-solving skills. Harry in Y6 said, “It took us a bit of time to work it out, but it’s pretty cool.” The staff in the school also got involved; “I think it’s been invaluable for learning basic programming skills for all of us – everyone has learned something new today,” said teacher Mrs Wright.
