Parents hands on BeeBots – workshop3

Parent workshopsThe focus for our third parent’s workshop was programming.

The computing curriculum states that our children should start to learn how to  program from an early age.

So, today our parents were trying out our BeeBots, they planned and tested their programs and then set each other challenges like using the pause function.
