Today we had the pleasure of welcoming the Year 4 children and staff from Reid Street Primary in Darlington to our TVCA funded World of Work Day. The day was held on the top floor at AV Dawson’s new HQ with fabulous views across the Tees Valley which took the children’s breath away!
After admiring the views, one of the first jobs was to get to know their Dash robot who was their little friend for the day! They started by using the skills they had acquired from Scratch at school and transferred them to the app ‘Blockly’ which allowed them to communicate in code with Dash. There was such a buzz of excited from the children! I think they will all have a Dash robot on their Christmas list! Following this, we introduced different companies in the Tees Valley and the children created a presentation from what they had learnt.
Everyone today had bucket loads of excitement and we look forward to working with Reid Street again in the not so distant future! (In fact it will be on the 22nd June for Animex)!
