The children had an exciting day of hands-on activities and learning about amazing STEM role models – mathematician Katherine Johnson and software engineer Margaret Hamilton – who were part of NASA’s Apollo missions. During the show, they gave AI the Robot step-by-step instructions to board her command module and get to the moon, “debugging” any issues in the algorithm until AI was successfully sent on her way! A fabulous time was had by all, with support from Cielo volunteers Lisa MacLaren and Mony Yip.
Our Moon Landing Coding Adventure is designed to appeal to both Key Stage 1 and Lower Key Stage 2, and helps children understand some of the details of how the first person landed on the moon. Many of the computing curriculum key terms are used in the show, which can be delivered in person, live online, or remotely as a pre-recorded TV show.
It is thanks to the kindness of forward-thinking businesses such as Cielo, who provide corporate sponsorship like this, that these educational shows can continue to be funded in schools around the country.
