How Water Works - Training Computational Thinking Skills

This unit was designed to be transdisciplinary in nature, i.e. facilitate collaborative work between students of different levels, from primary to secondary school age. Alternatively, each part can be taught at its own level individually. Starting with a computational thinking approach, to coding in Scratch through to programming robots and an ecological house, in the teaching unit ‘How Water Works’ students will discover everything about the topic of water.

The teaching unit is taken from the brochure Coding in STEM Education from the topic ‘Environment 4.0’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge via mail ( or downloaded. The project was proudly supported by SAP.
