Europe Code Week is a grassroots initiative which aims to bring coding and digital literacy to everybody in a fun and engaging way.

Shape and Space

Explore Shape and Space 1 and Shape and Space 2 and access a range of activities designed to consolidate understanding of Shape and Space concepts, promote computational thinking and challenge pupils to solve problems in practical and digital environments. Activties promote use of the Logo programming tool. Each activity is aligned to the Levels of Progression/Requirements for Using Maths and the Mathematics/Numeracy Area of Learning (Shape & Space).

Shape and Space 1: A teaching and learning resource for Using Mathematics

This resource uses practical activities, programmable devices and Logo software to promote using mathematical language and concepts related to position, movement and direction. It presents a graded progression of activities themed loosely on nursery rhymes and fairy tales.

STEM Futures: Straight to the Heart of it

Pupils take on the role of product designers in a company that specialises in advanced medical robotics. They design and make a prototype nanobot that can enter the bloodstream to clear built-up cholesterol from the arteries. They then program and control their nanobot to carry out a simulated medical intervention.
