Event Details

Welcome to our 8-week introductory to intermediate Coding Club. Starting February 1 and ending March 21, this club is designed for middle to high school age students, grades 6-12.  Spots are limited.

Suggested club fee is $25.00 per student to cover light snacks and graduation presents. Please email us if you would like to request a fee waiver.

Syllabus

1 Introduction to Computer Science & Basic Algorithms The students will learn how to construct algorithms by reflecting on every day activities, the first step to grasping the concept of computer science involves understanding how a computer works and responds.

2 Games with Block Programming This class will introduce block programming in a fun engaging way, the students will create their own visions of a video game by combining colorful chunks of code which translates to JavaScript-based code, a professional widely used computer language.

3 Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality The students will get to create their own virtual reality world and interact with different applications and technology to understand the difference between augmented reality and virtual reality.

4 Building Websites with HTML This class will engage students to think as entrepreneurs by creating a website for their “business”, the students will use actual HTML which is the common language used for most internet websites and applications.

 5 Understanding Circuitry  Students will explore basic circuitry through conductive objects and materials. The Makey Makey computer chip is easy to use, it connects to a laptop and it provides students with creative engaging science experiments.

6 Wearable Technology with Adafruit After exploring basic conductivity circuitry, the Adafruit computer chip will offer a more advanced view into how computer chips can be manipulated and programmed. The students will learn how to program LED’s, buttons, sounds, sensors, and other special features Adafruit offers.

7 Drawing Shapes with Code and 3D Printing  Students will get a brief taste of what it’s like to create visual shapes by coding using different programming languages. After creating their shapes using software, they will then create their shapes using hardware; the students will use the 3D pens to create their projects physically.

8 Programming Makeblock mBot robots For the final class project the students will participate in a friendly battle using block programming to program the mBot robot. The students will be tasked with customizing the robot with the materials from previous classes to make them unique through accessories.
