Amazing computing in Year 1

Amazing computing in Year 1

Year 1 were very confused when they were asked if  a computer could be programmed to make a sound when touching a piece of paper. With this in mind, we decided to find out. Before we could test this, the children were asked to think of an animal and draw it on to an A4 piece of paper. After this, using the Scratch program, the children wrote a simple algorithm that told the computer which animal sound needed to be heard. Finally, the children connected their animals to the computer using the MakeMakey. Year 1 were amazed to see that by touching the animal on the sheet of paper, the computer produced the sound of their chosen animal.
