Happening at:
Universidade de Aveiro, 3810-193 Aveiro, Portugal

As the world evolves, programming is becoming an essential tool for all fields of science and even life itself. This is an increasingly encompassing fact in engineering fields, with computing and automation truly augmenting tools and processes. GRIDS Code18 will provide a series of workshops where programming skills will take the center stage. The development of algorithms for solving engineering problems, from motion physics to numerical simulation and optimization, will gravitate around the focus on software development and programming using different languages. Applications will feed awareness, in an interactive and dynamic fashion. This is thought out for a broad audience, with little or no programming background, where you’ll only need the will to learn and an engineering knack.

Some math stuff that students must learn can be worked throught code and we think students may be more engaged in work and more prepared to the future. To do it we join two subjects, Mathematics and Informatic, in a programing and robotic club on context.

Hemos comenzado dando una charla informativa y motivadora sobre el pensamiento computacional en las aulas y sobre la participación en la UE CodeWeek. Una vez motivados al claustro y, por supuesto, al alumnado, hemos decidido comenzar a diseñar actividades unplagged sencillas, sin utilizar, de momento, ningún tipo de tecnológias (bits&bites, Cody&Roby,...), en diferentes materias; por ejemplo, estamos diseñando un tablero para trabajar los diferentes grupos musculares con los alumnos de quinto y sexto curso de educación primaria, o actividades de dar órdenes para que una persona haga los movimientos de un baile,... Y, además, con la intención de tratar de evitar el absentismo escolar, estamos intentando elaborar otra actividad que dure todo un trismestre. Hemos pensado, utilizando bit&bites o CodyyRoby en un circuito de carrera de coches (cada coche tendrá la foto de un alumno), y cada día, los alumnos que asistan a clase son los que podrán jugar y avanzar su puesto en la carrera.

Coding stories is a etwinning project which is about introducing and practising coding through stories we read or learn about a schol or an kindergarden. The activite can be done whithout computers and robots or coding apps
Start: Sep 25, 2018
As we are at Christmas time, the Children of the Child Jesus was told. After telling the story we will work in all the plastic and dramatic areas of Christmas story decorating the room and making Christmas cards. Next we will code the story and we will use the robot.
