Makerspace Club for Year 2

At A.B. Paterson College we are passionate about creating digitally literate students, who are well equipped with computer and coding skills. For this reason, we are excited to introduce our new Makerspace Lunchtime Club for Year 2 students beginning in Week 3 of this term.

Dash and Dot are robots that respond to voice, navigate objects, move, dance and sing. They are controlled with the use of iPad applications, and help to assist and strengthen student’s technological and coding skills. Students will collaborate as part of a team with specific roles, and follow sequenced steps whilst using the Go, Path, Wonder and Blockly applications.

Dash and Dot Makerspace information:

Who: Year 2 students (max. 8 students each week)

When: Tuesday lunchtimes, 1pm. Beginning Week 3 - 3 May 2017

Where: B2 (Mrs Muirhead’s room)
