RE:CODE London 2017/18 animated robot

RE:CODE London

RE:CODE London events give young Londoners aged 9-11 the chance to take on a real-life coding challenge. The aim is to build coding and creative problem-solving skills in year 5 and 6 students. Sessions are only open to London Curriculum registered primary schools.

At each 90-minute session, students will build, code and learn with Milo the robot to help tackle some of our city’s challenges.

Student activities

Each session will start by introducing children to coding. Students will then work in pairs to code and build Lego robots.

Afterwards, students will be able to:

  • use sequence, selection, and repetition in programmes; and work with variables and different forms of input and output
  • use logic to explain how some simple algorithms work; and to find and correct errors in algorithms and programmes
  • choose, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on different digital devices.
  • The aim is to design and create a range of programmes, systems and content that accomplish given goals. This includes collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information.
