Clever little tech wizards at St Patrick’s Catholic Primary have blown away judges at a competition and won their school a cool $5000.
The class of Year 1 put together a stop motion video that was so impressive that they won their classroom an ActivPanel, a cutting-edge interactive smart television.
The smart TV will match perfectly with the school’s smart children, who are learning coding and IT from their tech-savvy teacher Brittany Warton.
“We’ve got a very enthusiastic bunch of kids who love using technology, so it was fantastic for them to have an opportunity to showcase their learning,” Mrs Warton said.
While most of the parents wouldn’t know what an algorithm was if it leaped out of a bush and bit them, their kids are already on their way to becoming the tech geniuses of tomorrow.
Mrs Warton has been teaching the children how to program little robots to demonstrate basic coding principles.
These are the fundamental skills that Mrs Warton believes will one day turn her students into the digital pioneers of the future.
