Under the project, students will learn a customised version -- unique to the project -- of the popular programming language Scratch. They will also use MIT App Inventor that runs on Android devices and work on developing a robot kit in conjunction with Chromebooks. Students will study CT (computational thinking), the cornerstone computer science discipline that renders complex problems simple so that humans and computers can understand the possible solutions. This includes'pattern recognition', looking for similarities among data, and writing algorithms -- a step-by-step guide to solving a problem or task. Pupils will also learn skills such as'debugging' to identify and remove software or hardware errors and practises like'tinkering' to innovate and build on experimental models or prototypes.
