The Agrupamento de Escolas da Murtosa is deeply committed with the pilot test phase of the TangIn project, that aims to trial the toolbox of educational resources on tangible programming for primary school teachers.
The pilot has started on the 3rd week of March and will end by the 2nd week of June and gathers the involvement of 6 primary school level teachers of three primary schools of the Murtosa cluster: Monte primary school, Murtosa primary school and Torreira primary school.
