Barefoot Goes Wild!


On the 4th June Barefoot launches #BarefootGoesWild #BGW, a 6 week campaign demonstrating how computational thinking can be used outdoors, in conjunction with RSPB & Buglife.

The new campaign will provide a new nature Bee-Bot mat and jackets to make the Bee-Bots into insects and birds as they travel around the mat to complete the chosen existing lesson plans. Template jackets will also be available to print allowing creativity in the classroom as children can colour in or design their own insects or birds too. All of these are available FREE to download from the Barefoot website once a teacher has registered.

In addition if a teacher requests a workshop via the website to be held during September or October and enters ‘BUG’ as the campaign code they will receive a free nature pack, including a printed Bee-Bot mat, Bee-Bot jackets and 15 magnifying cards to help bring the nature theme to life.

So what are you waiting for? Register now for free and book a free workshop to get your #BGW Bee-Bot goodies.

The Barefoot Computing Project helps primary school teachers feel confident with teaching computer science. In an ever-increasing digital world, it’s never been so important for pupils to get to grips with computing and computational thinking. To help inspire pupils, with the help of Barefoot, teachers can use computational thinking concepts that underpin tech literacy through its FREE resources and workshops – all aligned to the curriculum.
