Hour of the Code

13th December 2016

Y8 took part in the 2016 UK Hour of Code on Monday 12/12/16.   

Students and parents of Y8 used their crafting and coding skills to design and make a programmable Christmas Card in an hour.   

 The Christmas card contained a simple electronic circuit that was controlled via students’ BBC Micro:bit and then programmed using Python or PXT Block Editor. 

 It was a highly successful hour; thank you to Mr Burrin, Mr Kerr and sixth form Computer Science students who organised and supported the event.
