Stage 2 Robotics & Coding
Stage 2 Robotics & Coding
Robotics & Coding in Stage 2
Robotics & Coding in Stage 2 is a hands-on practical workshop, providing teachers with the necessary skills to plan and implement Robotics & Coding across the curriculum, linking to outcomes in various KLA. Join RoboLink Education Director, Dr Lauren Purcell, for a day of hands-on STEM Professional Learning – lots of interaction and time to experiment with various robots in guided activities, and less of the sleep-inducing lecture notes and slides!
Creating Robotics & Coding activities for the classroom is a fun and highly engaging method of creating rich and collaborative learning opportunities which support students in developing higher order and critical thinking skills, while teaching design thinking and problem-solving capabilities – elements that all underpin the success of the 21st century learner.
Participants will explore the Digital Technologies strand in the new Science & Technology curriculum and identify connections to be made with other KLA – linking Robotics & Coding to the Numeracy & Literacy continuums. We will discuss the Scientific Method and the Design Process and how it can be taught with Robotics & Coding through the development of Project-Based Learning units of study.
On the day, participants will explore a variety of stage appropriate robots and their associated coding languages, including:
Dash & Dot
LEGO We Do Robotics
Participants will also have the opportunity to try 3D Design & Printing, and explore sample Project-Based Learning units to see in practice how this technology can be used in the classroom to enrich learning.
This is an ideal introduction workshop for schools who wish to implement Robotics & Coding or 3D Printing, and a consolidating workshop for teachers with some experience in Robotics & Coding who are looking to upskill and/or learn about other robots which are relevant to their Stage.
