About this lesson
Sequence, loops and basic music knowledge
Simple musical tunes are a great example of sequence in action. Using Edison and the Scratch-based programming language, EdScratch, students can create music and tie together sequence and inputs-outputs into enjoyable programs.
This activity is designed to mix the familiar with the unknown. By having students experiment using new blocks without explicit instructions or detailed explanations, they apply computational thinking practices and develop problem-solving mindsets.
This 1-hour lesson is designed to allow students to work independently as they discover:
- Code tracing
Celebrate student success!
Recognise your students’ achievements in taking on an Hour of Code challenge with Edison robots by presenting them with a certificate of completion.
