Nine schools participated in the iCode Day of Excellence at Coomera Rivers this week. Students, in teams of three, were given the challenge to produce an iMovie to communicate a video message encouraging others to stand up against cyber-bullying including a Dash robot as a character.
Students had to program Dash to play a role in their video message and they also needed to include another cyber safety agent as design criteria for the 2018 Premier's Coding Challenge.
Over the day, teams worked to write a script, design a costume for Dash, create art (title screen), write a program for their Dash robot and combine it all together to produce their iMovie. Schools can now decide if they would like to submit their iMovie as an entry in the Premier's Coding Challenge.
Our team of four Coomera Rivers Year 4 students, Josh, Abby, Jemma and Jordan were expert producers, writing and performing a creative script which sent a clear message about standing up against cyber-bullying, programming Dash as a key character and adding special effects to their iMovie production.
Thank you to Mrs Pinnington and her team for organising this brilliant extension event.
