Our curriculum

We aim to introduce microcontrollers and coding in Python. We will start by using the Raspberry Pi Pico to code a robotic car. This will involve lots of activities including getting around a course, as well as object avoidance. We will then use the Circuit Playground Express to build our own robotics platform. This little microcontroller is packed full of sensors and lights. Finally we will code a robotic arm and see if we can do some loading tasks and colour recognition. The course does not assume any prior experience, but learners must be engaged and able to touch-type.

Dr Darragh Corvan·Teacher and coder
Dr C is passionate about the provision of meaningful Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. Having had over 15 years of teaching Physics, I have always tried to give his learners exposure to the most up to date technologies within my lessons. As a teacher, I have full DBS checks applied and lots of experience of creating an encouraging environment for all learners. I am fully aware of safeguarding issues and have regular training in this area. I run both weekend coding camps, as well as holiday coding camps. These give learners experience of building circuits and controlling these by coding in Python. ​​ The aim is to move away from block coding, and give learners real exposure to real coding in Python.

Cancellation

My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.
