Code4Drones Enrichment Day at Sacred Heart - September 2021

Our HAP readers and Year 5 Rowan had the unique opportunity of experiencing a STEM Enrichment Session of coding with drones.  The students learnt the science behind how drones fly and learnt  fundamentals of coding as per KS2 Computing Curriculum.  They were taught how to programme their drone which then led them to complete a number of tasks and challenges using the coding skills they learnt to fly their drone.  

Quotes from some students that attended the session:

'I loved coding and having fun, as well as the learning.'

'I enjoyed watching the front flips and the back flips.'

'We learnt about how drones take off and how to code them.'

'We learnt how to control drones and how to fly them safely. We had fun!'

Mrs Livingstone, the Year 5 teacher commented, 'children absolutely loved it and had a great time.  It has been a great way to meet all the KS2 computing objectives.
