I had the honour of authoring the KS2 Physical Computing course for the NCCE over the Spring and got to deliver the course for the first time this summer term!
The course aims to introduce teachers to the Crumble micro controller; a lovely piece of kit that is so open ended, pupils can create all kinds of robotic autonomous systems.
If you are interested in booking yourself on the course, have a look to see if there are any in your area:
If you want to know more in general about Physical Computing, have a look at my blog post:
Apart from having a lot to squeeze in to a short amount of time, the course was a great success and the participants (teachers from KS2 and KS3!) left with confidence to begin delivering physical computing lessons with their classes.
There will be more of these courses put on in the very near future; there will also be the opportunity to loan (for free) a class set of Crumble kits for your school from your local computing hub. Click here for more information: NCCE Physical Computing Kits for free hire
