A workshop on using block programming to draw specific shapes and patterns. This teaches about programming and geometry.
This uses a free, in-browser, logo inspired program called Turtle Blocks
To discuss or book this or any of our other workshops, please contact Tally Roberts
Along with a delivery officer and PowerPoint presentation, we also provide laminated challenge cards for the class.
We also have a class set of 15 laptops available if required, with an offline version of the software installed.
We require access to a large presentation screen or projector for our presentations.
If using your own computers, they will need internet access to use the Turtle Blocks software in browser, or USB access to run an offline version we can provide.
We recommend a minimum of 60 minutes for this workshop.
This workshop is targeted at years 5-9 (ages 9-13).
Differentiation is present in the form of tiers within each challenge. The higher the tier, the greater the difficulty.
There is also our Curious Maths workshop which could be used to compliment the geometry aspect of this activity.
We can support this workshop remotely via Teams or Zoom set-up on a large screen or projector with a webcam and microphone.
Digital copies of the hand-outs can be made available for you to print before the session, or we can upload them to a webpage the students can view.
The best location for this would be a computer room with at least one machine between two learners.
We are always happy to tune our workshops to specific needs or occasions. For example, we released an online workshop using Turtle Blocks to draw flowers for both St Dwynwen and Valentine days.
