Primary School Coding Workshop
We bring STEAM to life with our range of Fun, Hands On, Engaging Workshops!
About this workshop
'Coding unplugged and demystified' - Tangible Africa's Rangers coding game is a fantastic resource for pupils to learn the fundamentals of coding in a way that does not require computers.
Pupils will work together to solve puzzles. building their code using physical, tangible jigsaw pieces.
Pupils can write, adjust and debug their code using the tangible code 'pieces'
Tangible has had a great impact since its introduction across Africa and we are excited to partner with them to bring 'Rangers' to Europe.
“Our vision is not only to introduce learners to coding, but to also enhance their 21st century skills such as problem solving, computational thinking, strategy, group work and communication. We want to keep on changing the narrative that low-tech interventions, rather than high-tech, are the way to make a wide impact on education on our continent,” Professor Greyling.
Key Habits of Learning
As your students engage in our workshops they will develop key habits of learning vital for their future education and careers.
From problem solving, persistence & perseverance to collaboration, listening and empathising to name but a few.
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.
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.
The Think Big Space is located in The Big Picture, Unit 5, Talbot House, Tallaght Cross East. It is easily accesible via Luas and many Bus routes.
