Programming robots is a fun way of learning computational thinking.

Years 9 and 10 Digital Technologies students have been programming robots. We have used block programming and sensors to move the Sphero Bolt (round ball pictured here), line coding to move the Ozobots around and directional programming with the BeeBots (pictured on the mat). It's always a lot of fun playing with the bots, but learning at the same time.
