Roamer for students 7 – 9 years old
Primary Roamer is the third step in developing coding skills. Students can give speed, volume and power different values. This gently introduces the important mathematical idea of a variable. You can also introduce Procedures: a basic idea of computing and problem solving. The Input and Output features add to the range of applications suitable for this age group. Importantly, Roamer does this in a way that meets the student’s immediate needs while building a foundation for their future studies.
