The launch of a new approach to coding in Primary School

We've done it - we've landed our first robot on the moon! It's official, Tavistock Infant school is the first school to have commissioned, programmed and successfully debugged the code to get a robot with their school flag onto the moon!


Much fun was had by all - even when things nearly went wrong! Thank goodness for the logical brains of the Tavistock Year 1s, who fixed our coding problems and made sure our mission was a success.


They followed it up by being robots on the moon themselves, hunting for rocks (and maybe aliens under them!)


Thank you to the head and the staff at the school who helped us get this launch under our belts, and what a success it was.
