Lyngsdalen Oppvekstsenter is located in Furuflaten, a small village in Northern Norway, one and a half hours drive from Tromsø. Oppvekstsenteret consists of a school with pupils aged from 5 to 13, a kindergarden for children aged 0 to 5 and an after school program. The pupils all come from our small village,  which has about 270 inhabitants, living in the  0.42-square-kilometre  village. Furuflaten is an industrial village, about 100 People work in the different factories here. In Norway coding and robotics are integrated in the national curriculum. In our school we each year take part in the First Lego League competition. Here the older children (aged 12-13) teach the younger ones how to program an Ev3 robot. We also participate in the competition with a junior FLL-team, which uses the Lego We Do software to program a LEGO model with moveable parts. We also use 3d-printing in our classrooms, and work a lot with coding at all ages, also in kindergarden, mainly using BlueBot and Scratch.

One thought on “Norway

  1. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Right now it appears like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform
    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  3. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you should publish more on this topic,
    it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk about such issues.
    To the next! Cheers!!
