Hundreds of students from more than 20 Surrey schools took in the first-ever district-wide Coding & Robotics Showcase Event.
Nineteen schools presented and demonstrated their innovations, from football- and soccer-playing robots to video games with play dough controls and 3D-printed eye glasses.
The more than 800 students attending the event on field trips also had plenty of hands-on opportunities, using remote controls to maneuver large and small robots, learning how to use simple programming language to create interactive animation, games or stories, and creating computer code to guide spheres through mazes and maps.
"The goal of the event was to showcase some of the amazing learning opportunities happening within our district," said organizer and helping teacher Zale Darnel. "We wanted to inspire teachers and students and honour some of the fantastic work being done currently."
