Coding at St Clare’s

Our Year 9 IST students have been getting familiar with their Makeblock robots. Both the mBot and mBot Ranger have been a big hit as the girls start to use the MBlockly app to code the robots to move in different directions.

We also purchased an Airblock which is Makeblock’s drone for students. Last week we allowed the girls a little ‘free flying’ time to see if they were able to control the drone using the simple controls on the iPad. The results were mixed to say the least!
