Adopt-a-School Programme @ Pilz:
The second school that we are working with in this programme is Scoil An Spioraid Naoimh Boys School, Bishopstown. Over the course of two 7 week programmes, the students will cover topics such as computer hardware, logical problem solving with Lightbot and programming interactive games and scenes with Scratch.

As classes are completed, the tutorials and solutions will be posted on this page.
Now that you’ve learnt all about Lightbot and Scratch, we’d like you to take a few minutes to fill out our survey. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Using light-Bot we will test the students ability to think and problem solve in a fun and simple way. The objective for the student is to light up all the blue tiles in the factory. The student can control the light-Bot by giving it commands, for more complex levels the student can use programmer style logic that include functions to re-use.
Scratch is a programming language learning environment enabling beginners to get results without having to learn syntactically correct writing first. Created by the MIT Media Lab, it is intended to motivate for further learning through playfully experimenting and creating projects, such as interactive animations, games, etc.
It is easier to use than traditional programming languages as it consists of graphical blocks which snap together.
