Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Come along and learn the basic's of coding at Building Block Studio over this 4 week period. We have small class sizes which will enable us to provide very personalised mentoring. We'll be able to work closely with our students and move along at a pace that suits them.

We will start with Scratch and complete a number of little projects and games that will introduce the student to the thinking that is needed to write code. We will learn how to use Scratch 2 to build scenes that have our characters telling jokes. Before long we will have built some great games that take input from the user to move our characters around on the screen.

We will learn some new works like 'Sprites', 'Scripts' and 'Animations.

We cover basic cartesian plane concepts like the X and Y directions.

We hope to install a love of problem solving, we show how to break down problems into small actionable steps.
