The Geelong Tech School has continued its work with the students of Lorne P-12 College this week as part of the Virtual and Remote program.
The collaboration sees students exploring both Computer-Aided Design and Electronics.
The Virtual and Remote program allows for the Geelong Tech School to access schools that sit outside our local government area. Students are able to access facilitators through virtual and remote modes.
A Microbit is open-source hardware designed for use in computer education. It has many programmable functions such as Bluetooth, accelerometer, compass, and LEDs that, when programmed, let it interact with the user and the outside world.
The Computer-Aided Design (CAD) unit sees the students as designers able to create and present new ideas to better help clients or investors understand an actual physical product.
