### Dijkstra's Algorithm

Dijkstra's algorithm finds the shortest path for a given problem. Dijkstra's algorithm can be used to find the shortest route between two cities. This algorithm is so powerful that it not only finds the shortest path from a chosen source to a given destination, it also finds all of the shortest paths from the...

### Bee-Bots Basics

This introduction to using the small programmable robot, the BeeBot, introduces children to creating simple programs. They learn the importance of sequences of accurate instructions, and test their sequences out using a 'fakebot' or paper-robot. Children are encouraged to debug and develop their sequences before...

### Pseudocode Challenge

This activity, created by Pete Dring and originally published here, contains a resource which is accessed via the web browser (although it is just on the local machine). The web page once loaded contains 20 interactive ...

### Life in a Can

A cross-curricular resource for primary and lower secondary schools that investigates life and how it can be maintained in the harsh atmosphere of space.

The engineers and scientists who built the International Space Station are faced with huge challenges - everything needed to keep astronauts alive must be...

### Fly by the Stars

Satellites and other spacecraft use star cameras to image space and to determine which direction they are pointing.

This resource, suitable for upper secondary school students, looks in detail at the night sky, examining objects and orbital motion within the solar system. Constellations and the stories...

### Compose Tune

Sonic Pi is a programming environment that lets you create music and other sounds with code while learning programming concepts at the same time, is included with Raspbian (the Raspberry Pi OS), but it is also available as a free download for MacOS, Windows, and Linux:

This...

### Happy Birthday

In this project, part of the HTML and CSS projects , you’ll be introduced to HTML & CSS by learning how to make your own customised birthday card.

Teachers and session leaders should access the ...

### Starting from Scratch

Scratch is widely used in primary schools to teach children basic programming. This resource goes deeper, making use of the familiar Scratch environment to take students deeper into programming concepts such as:

• Algorithm design
• Parallel and sequential instructions
• Event-driven...

### Coded simulation of Bubble Sort

This presentation guides students through an explanation & coded simulation of Bubble Sort. Students can add to this later by adding another option for Merge Sort with the potential to then measure the time taken for each algorithm to form a basis to compare the time complexity of the two. A copy of the...

### Flowcharts and Pseudocode

An introductory lesson, linking ideas from flowcharts to the use of pseudocode. The presentation may need some editing to remove school specific information. It contains a link to the "Friendship Algorithm" sequence from Big Bang Theory and a link to the description section for Algorithms and Pseudocode from BBC...
