Holiday Technology Club February 2017

Would you like the Curriculum Innovation team to run a Technology Club at your school during the February half term break? Dates currently available include 22, 23, and 24 February 2017.

Examples of what the team can deliver include:

Robot Day: Children across the country are learning to code through the Computing Curriculum but schools do not always have the facilities and expertise to develop coding opportunities using physical devices such as robots. This whole day session will introduce the children to the world of Lego EV3 programmable devices.  The children will spend the morning learning how to code prebuilt Lego vehicles to carry out a range of simple and more complex manoeuvres in pairs. The afternoon will then allow them to apply their new coding skills and problem solving abilities to complete a range of coding challenges navigating their vehicle around obstacle courses.

Minecraft Bonanza: Minecraft is very popular with children of all ages and is a virtual “sandbox” world where players can build and create wonderful things! It’s a bit like playing with Lego but more fun and encourages children to work together to solve virtual challenges. This session is appropriate for children of all Minecraft abilities. The day will include how to move, mine, craft and build structures and survive a night time environment! Complete team challenges in a variety of virtual worlds and create their own worlds including a fairground with rollercoasters.

Description: http://www.ticbradford.com/images/Even%20more/Popstar.jpgPop Star for a day: This two-day session will teach the children to use Garageband and create their own top 10 hit and then, by using the magic of green screen technology, create an award winning video to promote it!

The sessions are all delivered by enhanced DBS checked experienced Curriculum Innovation Consultants from Bradford Council’s Curriculum Innovation team. For further information please contact steve.dale@theinnovationcentres.com or call us on 01274 434818.
