- This event has passed.
In this session, we’ll undertake a series of hopefully fun and engaging activities to explore some of the fundamental topics of programming without doing much (if any) actual programming. Using tools developed to aid algorithmic thinking we’ll navigate a board using sequence, selection, and iteration. Following that we’ll use Sphero robots (http://sphero.com) to explore the room and solve navigational challenges.
Huge thanks to David Cutting and Ciara Magee from the School Of Electronics, Electrical Engineering And Computer Science at Queens University Belfast, who are leading this session. Its aim is to encourage computational thinking, help understand the basis of algorithms, and roll robots around the floor!
If you’re new to programming, this event is perfect for you. All equipment is provided, just bring yourself!
