EESW Speed Challenge is a fantastic two-hour taster session where pupils get to have a glimpse into the exciting world of F1 racing! 

If you are after some serious fun and maybe a taster of our F1 in Schools project, this is one to get booked in!

This session is perfect for KS2 years 4-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  


In this BBC Micro:bit workshop, students are guided through a series of challenges where they will write code using a 'Scratch' style interface to move a Microbit robot through a series of tasks. The children will then code a transmitter and receiver, turning their robot into a remote control vehicle with which they can compete with one another, adjusting their code throughout to improve their robot's performance.

This session is suited for KS2 years 5-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  


In EESW's Wind Turbine workshop, pupils to learn how a wind turbine works, how they are engineered and constructed. Working in small teams, pupils use our wind turbine model kits to build and measure energy generated. By adjusting their design, each team is tasked to create and record the most efficient wind turbine.


This session is suited for KS2 years 5-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.  

 

 


With EESW's LEGO robotics workshop, pupils will work in teams to program a LEGO EV3 robot to complete a series of tasks, learning fundamentals of software engineering as they do. This exciting full day session involving software, mechanical and civil engineering tasks is an ideal hands-on activity to get your students excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

This session is suited for KS2 years 5-6 and we can accommodate up to 30 pupils per workshop.

Get started with learning to code with our fun Scratch tutorials! EESW's step by step video guides start at the very beginning and allow pupils to explore and build a range of coding skills.

Using the online Scratch editor pupils will create their own games and more! You only need a computer or tablet!


Introduce hardware to your coding skills with our Coding with Micro:bit tutorials. Following our video tutorials, pupils can use the micro:bit’s built in sensors and household items to create functioning games!

Requires BBC Micro:bit. Class packs of 10 micro:bits can be loaned from EESW.
