This research investigates part of the challenge of widening participation and inclusion for teaching and learning about CS that the Institute of Coding plans to address. This research reports on working with a large number of schools, researchers and academics both formally and informally and across a wide age range and ability. The findings from a number of studies reflects important pedagogical theory, design and practice of teaching and learning about the computer science and engineering through tangible learning context. These findings and observations are examined in the light of these teaching and learning experiences and especially the observation of development of resilience in students learning and engagement in challenging areas of study.
