P5-7 pupils at Strone Primary School were offered an after school technology workshop last week led by Mr Steven Simpson, a Modern Apprentice with Learning Technologies at Argyll House.
Two P6 pupils Adam Lawton and Adam Smith gave the following feedback –
‘We learnt how to programme a Spark Plus. It is like a little plastic orb that you can control from your iPad using the ‘Lightning Lab’ App. We learnt how to programme it to go in a square’
Adam Lawton added ‘ We all raced against each other using our orbs which was really good fun’
Adam Smith stated ‘We could make our orbs talk in different voices. My orb talked back to me after I programmed it with the iPad. A big thank-you to Steven for running the workshop for us’.
