I opened with some general stuff about science and about programming, with an example I used at our nursery a few years ago and some Scratch which I've been doing with Naomi (note - this is an excellent resource for children to learn the basics of programming). Two of my colleagues Carron and Jason then talked about computing in healthcare (modelling disease spread) and brian-computer interfaces - where the children got a chance to remote control Jason's hand.
Thanks to the school too, we had a great time and hopefully the children got something out of it all.

Wow! What an amazing morning we had with Sandy, Jason and Karen who visited us from the Department of Science and Mathematics @StirUni as part of #NDLW19. They had so much to share with us. Highlight was the robotic arm. @DigiLearnScot @stirdigilearn #KIMdigital pic.twitter.com/oFHDBkt2Ug— KIM Primary (@Kininmps) May 16, 2019
