Students in the Design & Technology Department at Clevedon School have been learning a wide range of new skills including programming their pocket computer ‘micro:bits’ to control devices including NeoPixels, robot arms and buggies.

They have also been learning about programming ‘micro:bits’ using the Python language in their IT lessons – another brilliant example of the school’s cross curricular learning.

The students are going the extra mile in their Design and Technology Club to discover how to build robots and other state-of-the-art devices.

Dave White, Subject Coordinator for Design and Technology, said: “Our students have been having great fun in their learning, and enjoying building robots and controlling devices from their coding and programming.

“We live in a rapidly evolving technological world and are getting our students fully ready to thrive in it.”
