Project Torino Beta – Expression of Interest

Project Torino is a research project that has created a physical programming language for teaching computational thinking skills and basic programming concepts to children age 7-11 inclusive of children with visual disabilities. Working in pairs or alongside, children plug together beads to create code that produces music or stories. Utilising the curriculum exercises provided, children build up an understanding of code and computation concepts. Advanced students can use an accompanying digital interface to transition from the physical code to the digital code. This enables students to move onto mainstream programming tools with a strong understanding of the foundational concepts of computing.

Microsoft Research and the Royal National Institute of Blind People are collaborating to provide 100 children the opportunity to use the physical programming language in a beta trial starting in Autumn 2017. If you would like further information about the Beta trial, please complete the expression of interest form below.
