Students got to enjoy fascinating coding experience in different classes and even at home.

This academic year’s TAS Hour of Code saw our achievement of reaching 401 hours of coding, including 251 hours in MSHS and 150 hours in ES.

ROBOTS CODING WITH RMIT UNIVERSITY – TAS HOUR OF CODE 2019-2020

Today, December 4, 2019, TAS gladly welcome representatives from RMIT University to organize hands on coding events with Sphero robotics for our students. This is an exciting and important part of TAS Hour of Code 2019 – 2020.

TAS students from Grade 5, 9, 11 and 12 enjoyed wonderful sessions of controlling spherical robots via the Sphero app from RMIT University. Firstly, all students got the chance to play some fantastic soccer games using the robots. Then Grade 9, 11 and 12 moved on to coding the robots to move from station to station, while Grade 5 kids got to create colorful images that were later shown on their robots. Everyone was having an amazing time experiencing the magic of coding.

Special thanks to RMIT University for bringing this magic to TAS students!
