Coding and robotics with the Agenda 2030

Phase 1 Coding unplugged

Our project starts from building our robot to program. We call him Roby and Cody, is his programmer.

Cody and Roby are the simplest tool to play with programming at any age even without a computer. Roby follows the instructions that Cody gives to him. There are only three instructions to start: go forward, turn left, turn right. Each instruction drawn on the card is given from Cody to Roby. You can play on a chessboard or on a paper.

Phase 2 Visual block programming

The starting point of coding is visual block programming where the elements of the programming language are graphically depicted as blocks. You just need to move and order the block as if they were the piece of a puzzle. Each brick corresponds to a command, an instructions that does not need to be typed but only wedged to the previous block.

Phase 3 Robotics

Robotics is an educational approch to combine coding and the use of robots. Lessons become more interactive and creative, allowing students to be the protagonists of their own learning. Lots of disciplines are invloved.

Phase 4 The Agenda 2030 and its goasl

According to the goals nr. 14 and 15 we need to save oceans and protect nature. We code with pixel and and reflect about the importance of water and habits for all the living beings.

The goals nr. 11, 12 and 13 are about a sustainable life style to ireduce pollution and avoid waste. The climate change requires urgent actions and we try to find solutions with coding and robotics.

Phase 4 Dissemination and best practices

The goal nr. 4 is abut Quality education. We are building a school based on cooperation and strong relationships. Playing and having fun, all the students are involved and called to act fot the good of all. Each of us can do something to save our Planet and be part of the change.
