# Coding is More Than Writing Code

For primary school pupils it is important to learn how to write code, but they also need to learn how to apply computational thinking skills

### BUILD

#### The hands-on approach to coding

Combining hands-on LEGO® bricks with easy-to-use coding software and inspiring STEM projects, LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 enables teachers and their pupils to explore the building blocks of coding in a real-world environment.

### CODE

#### Solve real-world challenges through coding

From simple drag and drop interfaces to developing more complex algorithms, teachers are empowered to encourage pupils to explore the world around them and develop their own ideas and theories, making science come to life through coding.

Read these tips if you find coding daunting.

### LEARN

#### Coding for the real world

Through real-life STEM challenges and engaging physical and digital creation, WeDo 2.0 enables pupils to develop computational thinking skills and transform them directly into programming solutions that interact with the real world.

## Here's how you start coding

### Why should primary pupils learn to code?

Coding is part of what is called computational thinking, a fundamental set of skills that all students need to be prepared for the future real-world challenges. This approach to problem solving can help pupils in all STEM subjects and beyond.

Computational thinking involves:

1. Decomposition
2. Generalisation (Pattern recognition)
3. Algorithmic Thinking (Coding)
4. Evaluating
5. Abstraction

Using computational thinking to encourage pupils to explore, build, code, test and refine solutions to engaging STEM challenges, they are better prepared for the real-world challenges awaiting them.

WeDo 2.0 now includes eight exciting new projects specifically designed to engage in coding through developing pupils’ abilities to apply computational thinking.

### Why use WeDo 2.0 to code in the classroom?

The unique combination of building with the familiar LEGO bricks, using easy-to-use coding software and engaging curriculum relevant STEM challenges makes coding fun and relevant for primary pupils. Basically, everything you need to help every pupil to succeed at STEM through coding.

WeDo 2.0 helps pupils develop ways of thinking with coding as its foundation.
