coding 4en

All of the English Classes have been involved in piloting a programme called Bomberbot this spring.

Beyond the rudiments of coding, recognizing patterns, logic and persistence, coding further requires the ability to learn algorithms, functions and variables. Outside of what a teacher can do, the incentive to learn coding is greatly motivated by the intrinsic rewards within a coding curriculum product or game.
