Nigel WARD

Teacher of physics, computer science... and robotics!

I'm British, married to a French lady and living in the south of France. I have a degree in physics from Imperial College of Science and Technology, London (currently ranked second in the world!). I'm a teacher of physics and computer science - I've taught in a number of top international schools including:

* French American International School, San Francisco
* Hong Kong International School
* German-Swiss International School, Hong Kong
* British School of Brussels
* International School of Brussels
* European School 3, Brussels
* Centre International de Valbonne, France
* International School of Sophia Antipolis, France

In 2013 I began including robotics in my computer science course. The robotics classes were based on the Lego EV3 robot and went very well, but I was uncomfortable about teaching students how to program the EV3 using such a quirky (icon-based) interface. In 2015 I became aware of an easy way to program the EV3 textually, called EV3 Basic. I was so inspired by the power and simplicity of this little-known language that I met the developer and offered to do all I could do to help EV3 Basic to get the recognition it deserves. He approved... and here is the result!
