At Millais School we believe that it is important for local schools to work together to support their communities and we believe that an understanding of Computer Science and Coding is an essential part of a child’s education in the 21st Century.
As part of our drive to encourage interest in these topics we are offering Primary schools local to Horsham the exciting opportunity to participate in free educational workshops focused on developing their coding skills through the Digital Schoolhouse program. The Digital Schoolhouse enables us to offer our computing expertise and resources to primary schools to help to develop the skills and knowledge of both pupils and staff. We intend to make the workshops informative and engaging, covering algorithms, cryptography (History of Computing) and programming.
We have a class set of micro:bits- so we will run a micro:bit workshop. The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that introduces you to how software and hardware work together. It has an LED light display, buttons, sensors and many input/output features that, when programmed, let it interact with you and your world.
