Coding with Indi Robots
Coding is an area we have been focusing on developing throughout Term 2.
Today we were introduced to screenless coding by using the indi robots. With indi’s onboard colour sensor, the children communicate instructions to indi by placing coloured tiles on the floor that tell it what to do and where to go (and how fast!).
To facilitate a fully independent, pupil led investigation, we moved all the tables and chairs and cleared all accessible floor space to provide limitless opportunities for computational thinking.
We worked out how each coloured square controls indi and then we used our problem-solving skills to plot various routes and patterns for the robot to follow.
