The Grade 1 & 2 students have been learning about the design process. They've tested materials and joining methods and have designed and made a door hanger and a robot. Great fun has been had writing simple code to instruct their robot to move through a maze. The students have also been using ScratchJr and Robot School on the iPads while investigating coding.
As part of the unit about Community, the students have been busy investigating the services provided in our local community. A visit from an ambulance officer and a nurse helped them answer questions that they had posed. In groups, they designed their own suburb and transferred their designs into 3D models. The students also designed and made a magnet to advertise a community service.
