Innovations and Game Making during National Careers Week

This week we’ve been supporting schools from the Hull Ready Hub through creative computing activities with Y5.

What opportunities does computing offer towards future employment choices?

Well, we didn’t have a crystal ball at Malet Lambert, as 240 Y5 learners and their teachers got involved at the Careers Ambition and Inspiration Day.  But we did offer workshop activities focused on collaboration, game making and problem solving.
 

Part of activities to mark National Careers Week included learner engagement activities with an inventive focus.  Looking at a Raspberry Pi mini computer provided opportunities to work together to invent new solutions beyond the input and output conversations started.
 

The children also got hands-on with game making and development activities using Scratch as they worked with older peers too to create further iterations of their ideas.
