Abstract
The paper describes a pilot study where programming was introduced to a small group of Swedish upper secondary students with the intent to showcase how programming could be used to construct meaning about different physics concepts. The study found that the students realized the potential of programming as a tool to investigate and explore physics. The results were then described using the theoretical frameworks of social semiotics and variation theory.
