Building our own computers!

On Friday 8th February, Year 5 spent an exciting afternoon building computers using Kano Kits! There were, literally, squeals of excitement as learning partners got stuck in. Everyone carefully followed the instructions in the booklet to connect the bits, boards and buttons. Once the computers had been made, we took it in turns to wire them up to the monitors at the back of the classroom. The computers already had some software loaded on to them. Minecraft proved to be a favourite, but this was Minecraft with a difference! We were able to hack it by programming it to create our own custom commands.

The crate which brought us the Kano kits also contained some sensors and some light boxes which we shall continue to explore next week. We are very grateful to Gloucestershire Cyberhub for loaning us these wonderful resources.
