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

From Monday 9th of October 2017 at 13:03 to Friday 13th of October 2017 at 13:03

Description:

As world and life evolve, 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 Code17 will provide a series of workshops where programming skills will take the center stage. From mobile apps to the internet of things, from motion physics to numerical simulation and optimization, several topics will gravitate around the focus on software development and programming. 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

Depois de efetuada a 1ª atividade, já aqui registada, os alunos de 3 turmas de OTEC ( 26*3= 78) criaram em papel figuras divididas em pequenas quadriculas. Essas figuras vão ser ampliadas para painéis maiores (cartão reciclado cedido por uma cadeia de supermercados) que depois de devidamente transformados em quadriculas maiores que representam a unidade pixel, serão preenchidos com tampas de garrafas pet, recicladas. Estas tampas foram escolhidas e lavadas, pelos próprios alunos. Após esta transformação, as tampas serão os nossos pixels coloridos e darão forma à imagem de "computador".
