Squishy Circuits are a great way to take modelling further by introducing batteries and components. Use Squishy circuits (conductive and insulative play dough) to create the circuits and realise part of a design. Comprehensive classroom guidance for ideas in using this in fun and inspiring ways.
The National STEM Learning Centre and Network supports the teaching and learning of science, design and technology, computing, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in schools and colleges throughout the United Kingdom, from primary level to post-16.
We enable educators and partner organisations to...
This diagram supports the understanding of computational thinking, a skill in the primary computing curriculum. Students studying computing will gain an understanding of computational systems of all kinds, whether or not they include computers.
Computational thinking is the thought processes involved in...
This workshop investigates how images are stored as data, and shows the difference that ‘bit depth’ makes to the quality of images and number of colours.
It begins by looking at paintings and how, using only paint, images were difficult to edit – however digital images are much easier. Pupils with access to...
This 'concept card' from the Barefoot collection explains 'computational thinking':
*What it is
*Why it is important
*What it looks like in the primary curriculum
*How to find out more
It supports teacher understanding to improve their teaching of the Barefoot activities.
Used to support teaching of computing in primary schools, these information sheets offer primary teachers an explanation of the six key concepts of computational thinking as defined by CAS (Computing at School).
The resource, created by the Barefoot Computing project, would prove useful to teachers new to...
