At St Thomas', we have an extensive Robotics Program throughout Years 1-6. As a future-focused school, it is important for us to be able to provide our students the opportunities to develop the programming and coding skills that will set them up for their future. The Western Australian Curriculum has a strong focus on Digital Technologies, and our emphasis on Robotics throughout the school is one of the main ways we address this curriculum area.
Throughout the school we have the following Robotics resources that are utilised each year as part of the digital technologies curriculum:
Year 1 - BeeBots
Year 2 - Lego WeDo 2.0
Year 3 - OzoBots
Year 4 - Spheros
Year 5 - Microbits
Year 6 - Lego EV3 Mindstorms
We also have programmable drones that are utilised by our upper primary students during the year as part of specialist and extension programs.
