Days: Monday to Friday from 17th December to 21st December
Times: 10am - 4pm
Our Scratch programming course builds a strong foundation in computer science and creative problem solving through making animations and games. Over the course of five days, your child will learn to create storylines, program characters and construct their own games.
This course is perfect for coders already familiar with Scratch. Each lesson starts at a gentle pace with lots of extension activities to challenge even the most adept young programmer.
We will be starting each day teaching touch typing, a key skill in any programmer’s life. Coders will find their way around the keyboard playing fun typing games and competing in exciting challenges.
We will be making exciting games, creating art projects, and designing characters in Scratch, a block-based coding language that is a necessary first step in any young coder’s journey. By creating their own projects, children will learn about loops, variables, functions and more!
In our robotics sessions we will be exploring LEGO WeDo and building robotic LEGO models! LEGO WeDo helps build science, technology and maths (STEM) knowledge while incorporating lessons in language arts. We will learn about Ozobots, build our Mbots, and use our improved Scratch skills to program our LEGO WeDo creations.
This adventure is fun, entertaining, creative, and most importantly, valuable as children will develop essential computational thinking and creative problem-solving skills. In one week, your child will have more experience with computing than many children have in a year at school.
