Robotics and coding for Goolgowi PS

Goolgowi Public School, NSW

Goolgowi Public School is a small, rural school in the Riverina which provides high quality education in a nurturing, small school environment and we believe that isolation should not be a barrier to achieve this education. As educators, we need to prepare our students for digital and technology based jobs of the 21st century by providing them with opportunities to learn valuable skills in coding and robotics. Robotics encourages children to think creatively, develop problem solving and collaborative teamwork skills whilst having a tremendous amount of fun.

The school wishes to extend their fledgling robotics and coding program to the K-2 students by providing suitable resources such as robots and software programs to facilitate the development of skills in coding and robotics. To do this, we need to provide professional learning for our staff and this can be prohibitive as it involves travel and accommodation costs to a major centre.

Through our project, we hope to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Increase the level of engagement through creative thinking, problem solving and collaborative teamwork skills
  • Introduce and demystify Information Technology through a fun engaging program where students can learn the basic programming skills
  • 21st century skills that will enable students to be more employable in the future
