Programming pupils have been practicing their coding skills on high-tech pocket computers.

Design and technology students at Clevedon School have been learning a range of new skills by using advanced technology to control various objects including robot arms and buggies.

Design and technology co-ordinator Dave White says the project is helping students prepare for life in an increasingly technological world.

He said: “Our students have been having great fun in their learning, and enjoying building robots and controlling devices from their coding and programming.

“We live in a rapidly evolving technological world and are getting our students fully ready to thrive in it.”

Pupils are also learning how to build their own robots and other state-of-the-art devices as part of the school’s popular design and technology club.
