Mars Challenge – unplugged computing primary resources

Mars Day is on 5th March 2024 and STEM Learning have launched a brilliant set of lessons and resources linked to computing using the context of Mars exploration. Pupils will learn about algorithms, debugging, flow charts, repeat loops, decision trees, and how images and data are relayed. All of the activities are unplugged and no computer is needed!
