Coding for the Climate will encourage students to consider some causes & effects of climate change, while working collaboratively with each other and technology.
Students will discuss some interactions between our ecosystems and the greenhouse effect. Using Dash robots, students will explore coding with functions and sensors to inspect & map a simulated neighbourhood, then send the robot on a journey through that neighbourhood!
