5 Blockly + Biology challenge

DT Challenge 5 Blockly + Biology

Combine Biology and Digital Technologies to identify animals!

Learn about the differences between animals, and how Biologists use programming to help them do science! We'll learn about the features of animals, structural and behavioural adaptation, and how to use these properties in order to identify them.

So hop in and learn some science! This course is based on the Year 5 science and the 5-6 Digital Technologies curriculum.

Full instructions for signing up your students can be found on our blog.
