Crack the Code
40 mins - 1 hour
Students learn about codes, what they are and their use in society, before attempting to crack a series of codes, each one requiring a different technique to the last.
Each code gives a clue to unlocking the next, and young people will need to use a number of skills to enable their team to achieve the final task.
Finally, they learn about codebreaking in the modern world and the careers linked to these.
50 mins - 2 hours
Large classroom, hall or other clear space
Young people are introduced to modern uses of robotics before they are tasked with using a Sphero robot to rescue a person who has been injured in a disaster zone.
They must code their Sphero to avoid the obstacles and navigate to the casualty, before sounding the alarm and rushing back to alert rescuers.
Many of our workshops can be combined to give students a more in depth and impactful experience, for example, by creating a whole year drop down day. Example timetables are below, but all timetables are designed to fit with your school day. Our team can recommend workshops which complement each other so please get in touch to discuss.
