Mildura West Primary School has incorporated digital coding into their learning programs for a number of years. In 2015, students participated in the World Scratch Day, an international coding event, and the Great Victorian Coding Challenge, where students across Victoria completed three coding challenges, demonstrating mathematical concepts.
The school also facilitated a Robotics and Code Club on a weekly basis for interested students in Years 3 – 6.
Four students from Year 5 were excited to be involved in a pilot program called Games.Net, run by the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), where they joined as a virtual team with other schools to develop a game to share with the network.
