Eu Code 2020
Coding & Computer Science students participated in the EU Code Week 2020, which was held online 10th – 25th October. Algorithm skills were needed to develop the code for a traffic light sequence. Using a micro:bit, crocodile clips and some LED lights students proceeded to wiring up their project, downloading the code and got the chance to see their name in LED lights before activating the code to light up the LEDs. Students had the opportunity to personalise their code by amending the pauses between the lights and inserting their choice of emoji icon along with their name. It was the first practical coding session so lots of hand sanitiser before and after along with the use of gloves ensured the safety of all students and the cleanliness of equipment.
