Teach Too: Carshalton College: working with Mirobot on entrepreneurial robotics and physical computing'

Summary Teach Too is about encouraging people from industry to spend time teaching their work through curriculum development, promoting the practice of teachers and trainers updating their industry experience and helping to build genuine collaborative arrangements between employer and providers. Through the Teach Too Development Programme, this project with Carshalton College set out to create a relationship with an industry partner to establish a curriculum which was focused on physical computing, coding and programming and had a clear line of sight to work in the digital industries. Curriculum staff developed a ‘live’ brief, based on real work practice, with Ben Pirt from Mirobot, a robotics company which produces small robots for use with young children.
