Lesson 1 - What is an algorithm

In this activity children learn what an algorithm is and explore what makes good instructions for an algorithm. They work as a team to create their own algorithms to guide each other across a grid of squares avoiding set obstacles. The activity uses the context of Mars exploration, as they role-play the ExoMars...

Evaluating the impact of new teaching practices - computing

These videos guide you through the process of evaluating the impact of changes you make to teaching approaches in your classroom. The evaluation approaches described here will enable you to tell whether new approaches are more effective than what they have replaced. You'll be able to make evidence-informed...

Sensors and logic

In this session students will create a logic circuit to represent a Mars rover MOT. They will identify the necessary logic gates and consider numerous inputs, which will be combined and traversed in person. They will make the link between truth tables and undertake testing and some simplification to reduce the...
