Working with Pip Dick in the Senior Hub

by Anna Ollerenshaw

Every Wednesday after lunch at 1.30 a really nice lady called Pip comes to the Senior Hub to teach us stuff using technology. She also goes to other schools like Balmac too. She also does this thing called Robocup and runs an after school programme called Hatch. It's a place where you can do lots of Project Based Learning, and some programming and 3D printing. Look it up. Last year she taught the seniors to make robots using motors. We really enjoy her coming she has taught us a lot in the past, and now, we hope she comes in the future. We hope you like Pip as much as we do. By Lucy and Charlie N
