Computational Thinking Treasure Hunt

These are the materials for my Digital Schoolhouse workshop at the Big Bang Fair 2016. The aim was to encourage Key Stage 3 pupils (aged 11-14) to think about Computational Thinking concepts using a practical team-based activity that involved the use of iPads. Specifically I wanted pupils to develop an appreciation of the benefits of decomposing a problem and using pattern recognition to help arrive at a solution.

Note that this was only ever intended as a basic introduction and the activities presented were never meant to be overly complex or challenging.
