Students at Macarthur Adventist College (Sydney, NSW) have been having lots of fun learning about the world of coding.

On March 27 and 28, Peter Wallace, the e-learning specialist from Greater Sydney Conference, visited the school to teach the students about the digital world and how to use micro:bits—a type of coding device.

“Students created a virtual pet that responded to touch through light and sound,” year 5 teacher Jacqui Maua said.

“The students really enjoyed exploring with the micro:bits and look forward to creating and coding with them more throughout the year.”
