Friday the 20th of July, marked the anniversary of the 1969 moon landing. To celebrate this historic achievement many EDHS students took part in ‘MOONHACK 2018’ a world record attempt to have the most people coding on a space themed activity at one time.
Coding is an important skill for all kids to learn, and we want to be sure everyone can gain the skill, confidence and opportunity to shape their world. Let's go to the moon together! - Code club Australia.
After a big job to count and verify all the submissions that were made across the globe on the day, results have been released and A NEW WORLD RECORD has been set with 35,865 kids coding space themed projects!!!
What an amazing global achievement that Exmouth has contributed to!!!
To play the game below press SPACEBAR to burn fuel and slow down the lunar module. If you hit the moon surface too fast ( If speed > 2) you will crash. This is quite challenging to do. The kids showed their coding skills are improving when they worked out how to reprogram the code to make it easier or harder to complete the game!!!
Just think about what your class will be able to do in the future with all of this technology and, importantly, knowledge, at their fingertips! Although 'code' plays an important part in the creation of digital technology, the Digital Technologies learning area guides students to develop fundamental skills that will become crucial for creating code and solutions.

Cassini Orbiter Instruments
They survey and sniff, analyze and scrutinize. They take stunning images in various visible spectra. Cassini's 12 science instruments are designed to carry out sophisticated scientific studies of Saturn, from collecting data in multiple regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, to studying dust particles, to characterizing Saturn's plasma environment and magnetosphere.
Check out this drone tour of the EDHS building and surroundings. Thanks to Mr Plummer for the very cool camera work. This footage was taken for the WA Museum's digital exhibition of Exmouth celebrating 50 years. Gives a great perspective of our school's position to the gulf.
