Members of 5th and 6th class took part in two Microsoft Dream Space events. 

Think like an Engineer - pupils used an internet enabled device to log on from home but the tasks were "unplugged" which meant that other than logging on from home, they did not use a computer. There were a number of speakers and a number of challenges that required just a pen and paper.

Code Like an Engineer - Pupils logged on from home and  learned the basics of coding  They were introduced to the micro:bit and learned how to program the micro:bit. This session was full of fun and engagement and allowed the pupils the opportunity to think like a software engineer.

Both sessions were fun, interesting and challenging and the boys and girls who undertook it from our school really enjoyed it.
