Thales Arduino

Project Arduino is a competition that’s designed to give an insight into what it’s like to work at Thales. Students were asked to build their own Thales-inspired project using Arduino, and create a video to promote it. This gave them the opportunity to work with some cutting-edge technology and win some big prizes in the process. The teams featured are already through the initial stages and each represents one of the seven regions which are participating in the competition: France, UK, USA, Netherlands, Singapore and China and Hong Kong.

Learn basic programming skills with the "Moana: Wayfinding with Code" tutorial on Code.org. The new Disney Hour of Code tutorial uses a visual programming language using blocks where students simply drag and drop visual blocks to write code. Visual programming is a fun and easily understood way to teach the logic of coding. Exposure to visual programming lays the foundation for text-based programming, a more complex activity. The tutorial is targeted for kids ages 8+ and those trying coding for the first time.
