How to Use Halocode to Invent Stories to Foster Steam World
Participate and share : Poster
Participants will experiment and create their own interactive stories with the Halocode board and its sensors. We will discuss the importance of reading in STEAM activities by inventing and programming a story. Makeblock Halocode is designed explicitly for educational purposes, working perfectly with block-based programming software mBlock.

Makeblock Halocode is a single board computer with a built-in Wi-Fi. Designed explicitly for educational purpose, Halocode works perfectly with block-based programming software mBlock. Participants will discover how easily students can drag and drop the command blocks to code, making programming as intuitive and straightforward as playing building blocks.
I am K-5 STEAM teacher in Rome. I love picture books for children and I try to use them engaging kids with beautiful reading aloud for my activities. My objective is STREAM with the R of Reading!
