Computational Thinking for KS3

This unit of work introduces students within KS3 to the concepts of computational thinking by helping Rob-bot the robot make a jam sandwich. Through the activity, students will learn about decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction and algorithm design (through both basic flowcharts and pseudo code). They will also lean about the importance of debugging their algorithms.

The duration of this work usually takes between 2-3 hours to complete, so is perfect as an introductory unit to computational thinking and programming.
