2nd, 3rd and 5th class had a fantastic experience today at their 'Introduction to Robotics' workshop. The Lego Education Spike kits sparked huge excitement in the classes, all the fun of building with LEGO bricks, plus the challenge of computer programming. Everyone involved was delighted to learn so much about robotics in such a fun way!

More workshops next Wednesday! See all the action here -
