Code Smart is a computing and robotics education programme based on driverless car technologies. Students will develop their ability to code as well as their design thinking as they tackle smart city challenges. Learn how to code using the Makeblock mBot STEM education robot.
Through a series of nine lessons, students will learn about aspects of making, programming and design thinking as they build and program their own robot cars. They will work in teams to tackle coding challenges based on the actual problems that engineers are faced with in designing autonomous vehicles. In a final design challenge, students will need to work on not only the technical aspects of driverless cars, but also how they can improve lives and create smarter and safer communities.
Code Smart takes students on a journey from complete beginners to code creators. Along the way, students are provided with real-world links opening up a range of possible STEM careers.
Code Smart is aligned to the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum for Computing for England, and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards in the USA.
This Code Smart Teacher Book is complemented by a Discovery Zone collection, containing 12 videos, two 360 VR experiences, and an interactive diagram comparing the mBot to a driverless car.
