Waste as a tool for computational thinking

A modified version of the blog post in: 

An article in the Northampton Herald and Post " How a university is using waste as tool to inspire students" by Lawrence John discusses the Junkbots project.

One force which is driving this idea forward is the University of Northampton.

By working with schools, the university hopes to show pupils a different side to computing and hopefully raise their interest in what they can achieveLawrence John
