This looks like fun. I have tucked it away in my DT kete. It has links to the actual lessons teachers could follow if interested.

      It is an excellent way to introduce concepts of computer science to young children in a fun way.  The Canterbury Uni team do an incredible job teaching Computer Science 4 Primary Schools. As a DTTA member I was privileged to go down in 2017 to learn how to deliver this in Wellington. It's on of the ideas I have been discussing with the local council about develop resource kit in a box ideas for primary schools to pick up and run with.

          Hey Jacky, give me sometime to find them.  There are a lot of great unplugged activities, but there are some real winners to get people started, I need to check through notes.  So focused on secondary assessments and marking at the moment, planning NCEA level 1 workshop for DTTA on Saturday and juggling busy life with newborn . . . . . 

          I'll be in touch ;)
