Peter Stringer, KS2 Leader said: “The children have been learning about data logging and 3D Modelling, two particular areas of the ICT curriculum we have to cover. ComputerXplorers gave us some great ideas about how to combine the children’s science learning with their ICT curriculum. They love the activities and have been so motivated and absorbed in class. We have seen their grasp of science really progress since ComputerXplorers started running the classes.”
Andrew Petty, ComputerXplorers Cotswolds said: “We have been teaching Year 3 & 4 children how to use data logging equipment to measure light, sound and temperature, record the results of their experiments, draw conclusions and create graphs. We have also written a bespoke curriculum for the school that their teachers will be able to use for many years to come. For children in Years 5 & 6 we have been using a 3D modelling tool, to link in with the school’s theme of Space. The children are so involved and enthusiastic by what they are doing.”
