Engaging primary school students in mathematics through coding and robotics

Summary

Engaging young learners in STEM practices such as robotics and coding gives students the opportunity to use new and emerging technologies to solve problems while extending their own knowledge and understanding of mathematics. This session will draw on a research project that has been conducted with Year 2 - Year 5 students as they engage in robotics and coding to learn mathematics concepts related to measurement, space and patterning. Participants will have the opportunity to work with coding programs and trial tasks that were undertaken as part of the research.
