Master coding skills through exploring digital systems, algorithms and robots!
This incursion lets your students test their coding skills in the most enjoyable way possible. It is the ideal program to support your in-school digital technologies curriculum.
Students explore the components of a digital system, decoding data and solving a puzzle to examine how components communicate and function.
They test and critically analyse searching and sorting algorithms to explain which are most efficient. Students learn how computers use binary to store and represent data, such as images, music and text, and they create their own binary representations of images.
We use Ollie and Sphero robots with obstacles and ramps to spark your students' interest in coding digital systems and executing algorithms.
Booking this incursion includes assessment rubrics, follow-up resources, lessons plans, and professional development certificates for all attending teachers.

“The Code Masters incursion was fabulous. All students were extremely engaged. The rotations challenged each child's thinking and promoted discussion around binary numbers and Spheros. It has definitely inspired our senior students and teachers. Our class cannot stop learning about binary numbers now. We're hooked!”
