Alongside Hub meetings, CAS Master Teachers and other curriculum champions host a variety of CPD sessions and other activities, such as 1:1 support for schools, cluster meetings, coding evenings, moderation sessions and of course more formal training events. These can take place in your school!! Contact your local master teacher or CAS London directly to request specific training. What do you need?
At Sandhill View Academy, a CAS lead school for Computer Science, year 5 and 6 visiting pupils were invited to step into the fictional world of Cybertron. Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, had been badly damaged and required new hardware devices to rebuild his body, as well as his programs rebooted.
Pupils were challenged to select appropriate hardware devices to rebuild Optimus and justify their choices. They were then encouraged to develop programs to allow Optimus to “transform” and to speak to his fellow Autobots. The visiting primary schools all enjoyed the event immensely and were able to develop their knowledge and skills in Computer Science in a fun and active manner.
