DT Challenge - 5/6 Blockly - Biology
Learn about the differences between animals, and how Biologists use programming to help them do science! We'll learn about the features of animals, structural and behavioural adaptation, and how to use these properties in order to identify them.
So hop in and learn some science! This course is based on the Year 5 science and the 5-6 Digital Technologies curriculum.
To do the challenge offline use this guide to support students.
