This unit reflects the Victorian Digital Curriculum which is a central initiative for STEM teaching in schools. It aims to foster students’ critical thinking skills (such as computational thinking and logical reasoning) as a means to understanding, communicating and solving a problem individually and collaboratively. Students learn to control Sphero SPRK+ robots on Mars. They work in groups to analyse a problem, design a solution and evaluate their success.
