Codebotics

Discover basic coding at its best with this creative twist   

RECOMMENDED FOR YEAR 2 - YEAR 5

Students see the evolution of coding using 'plugged' and 'unplugged' forms. This incursion incorporates team work, creativity, technology, performance and problem solving all in one. 

Students are given challenges to code their way through obstacle courses and command their robots to do things such as speak, sound like a chicken, change colour or roll. 'Unplugged' coding brings out students performance skills as they code their class to respond to their commands in a systematic approach that challenges students memory skills. 

Our qualified teachers are fantastic at tailoring the sessions to suit your focus so please give us as much detail as possible and we will make it happen.

We used the Billy Cart and Hip Hop incursions as activities for our Year 2 camp day. The kids loved it! The activities were structured, energetic and engaging. The kids slept beautifully that night at the sleep over. Big thanks to Mel and Brent- they were awesome with the kids!

All of the grade fours loved the Billy Carts incursion today! Andy was a great presenter and the students thoroughly enjoyed all of the rotations. They consolidated their learning in a fun and interactive way! I have written a blog post for my class blog about the incursion if you'd like to look at it http://missjordan.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/11/21/billy-carts-incursion/ Thanks for organising the incursion for us!

The program was very open and choice-based, which allowed the students to explore what they were interested in without feeling overwhelmed or disinterested. This allowed all learners to feel enjoyment and success! We had a wonderful time and will definitely use the company again! Ian - the facilitator - was incredibly organised and worked really well with the kids! When we returned to the classroom, the students enthusiastically discussed what they had learned (particularly in regards to the vinegar/bicarb soda reaction and the magnets). Thank you for an amazing day!
