About this workshop

Our 'Creative Coding' workshop uses iRobot's Root robot, a platform for pupils to learn about and explore coding - computational thinking, input and output, loops and Logic. The Root robot can draw with markers on a whiteboard, allowing pupils to code it to create art.

Three learning levels helps pupils understand concepts, and build on that knowledge to become competent coders quickly!

Writing code that is translated into reality with a drawing robot makes learning coding concepts engaging and exciting at every level.

Creative coding

Pupils will work together through a series of artistic challenges - writing and testing code to program their robot to draw and interact with colours.

This process allows pupils to explore independently, building confidence and learning through hands-on experience.

Engineering Design Process

Throughout our workshops your students will follow the engineering design process.  Defining the problem, brainstorming solutions, developing prototypes and testing and iterating their solutions.  

A key framework from problem solving in our daily lives.

Computational Thinking

As your students interact with our materials & coding language they will engage in key computational thinking concepts such as decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and algorithms. Enabling students the ability to take complex problems and break them down.
