Team Assembly Week 10 Term 2

Room 16 have been learning about coding.  We have been lucky enough to have some Bee Bots to learn how to programme.  We all found it took a lot of thinking through where we wanted the Bee to go and how it was going to get to the hive.  Kalylah and Hitelenisia were both able to programme the Bee with several instructions so well done to both of them for taking the time to think carefully.
