ICSAT has a number of courses for the Summer term, including one we provide for the Design & Technology Association which is extremely popular. The courses are suitable for colleagues who teach D&T and Computing and are aimed at the Arduino and the 8 pin & 14 pin Arduino! We are getting many requests from schools for Arduino courses for GCSE Engineering and STEM, get ahead of the game with these practical hands-on course, with plenty of classroom ready projects and support materials.
Download the latest version of our Pathway to Programmable Components, which now includes mapped programming requirements for KS2, 3 and GCSE D&T.
Following our course in 2018, we now have a wide range of Design Contexts created, these provide a set of Design contexts, suitable support materials along with a wide range of design opportunities. These are available via our Moodle website.
The materials are not directed at any particular Awarding Organisation, but will explore ICSAT's approach to writing stimulus materials to help students get quickly started in their decision making and the iterative design process that follows.
They are also suitable for use from KS3 to GCSE.
