Designing plastic sea and beach cleaners

One of my big passions is looking after the environment. Our class have been involved with the the #strawssuck campaign after watching @blueplanet2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=58RXR_b7QYM 

More recently, I brought 15 Lego We Do 2.0 packs for the school. The idea was to closer link computing and STEM subjects and raise their profile across the school. It was a huge success. The teachers and the kids loved it. 

You can find the PowerPoint for two lessons below. The first involves building a space rover and the second involves designing, building and programming a beach or sea cleaner.
