Year 5 Went To City College

On Monday 10th July, Mr Phillips and ten Year 5 children visited City College to take part in devoxx4kids (http://www.devoxx4kids.org/) which is a brilliant event allowing children the chance to learn programming skills in a variety of different applications.

 

Our Year 5 children had the chance to create ‘mods’ for Minecraft, use soldering irons to create electrical circuits, programmed their own level of Flappy Bird, programmed a robot to tell a story and also used Lego Mindstorms to control machines that fired plastic bullets across the room!
