Children from 7 to 12 years old can have fun and learn with the art of coding. Coding? Yes, a subject, now, almost scholastic, which aims to teach software development (and not only) to young minds. Its strength lies in providing the logic of computational thinking even to the smallest, potentially more “explosive” minds.
During the workshop the children, organized in small teams, will be able to interact with the Sphero Bolt and develop an idea thanks to this art. Everything will be possible through a graphical interface where it will not be necessary to write but, through an approach to Lego, you can observe the magic accomplished in front of him. All this by stimulating the mind to reason and face a new level of reasoning. The beautiful? The result will be achieved by having fun.
Each participant is advised to be equipped with a tablet (possibly an iPad).
– Start of work at 10:30, with a teaching session and mini-exercises until 13:00
– Lunch break between 13.00 and 13.30 (to be paid for by the parents or accompanying adults of the participants)
– From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. the work continues in groups, with demonstration of the results between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Until 12 noon everyone is welcome, while afterwards any access to the activity will depend on the conditions of the event.
The activity is led by Giacomo Cusano and Luca Infante, IED Milan teachers.
