On the 6th of June 2018 Trentham Academy students attended an expertly led training day at GBM Digital’s new training facility in Manchester. The trip was to celebrate the launch of our new digital leaders programme, which will be a great benefit to all at Trentham Academy. The students, who had all applied for their new position, learned about swift coding with iPad and Sphero. A Sphero is a small robotic ball that can be programmed with an iPad.
The morning was spent learning to code with Swift Playgrounds, while the afternoon was spent using programming in real world challenges like unlocking a pirates chest using a cypher and scoring goals by writing a program to make Sphero travel in the right direction.
Mr Bunyan would like to thank GBM Digital for their excellent tuition during the day.
