Y8 Make.Learn.Share Ambassadors

make.learn.share ambassadorsStudents from Year 8 applied to be MAKE.LEARN.SHARE Ambassadors in a new Computer Science project that was launched last week.   This is a citywide ‘Made in Sheffield’ project initiated and supported by Sheffield City Council (you can read more on http://www.makelearnshare.org.uk/about ).  Fifteen budding computer scientists were chosen and spent a day at Sheffield Hallam University learning Robotics.  This was followed by two days training at the CLC – one to get to grips with app design and the second a Teaching & Learning day which taught the Year 8s how to teach younger pupils.  

The 15 students ‘graduated’ and were presented with their special polo shirts in Assembly.
