Description

This fun packed, interactive introductory course to coding for beginners uses Block coding to control a Sphero robot. Our workshops go beyond coding to integrate STEM concepts and Learning Areas from school to illustrate the practical application of knowledge as well as new concepts learnt along the way.

The workshops are design to be fun, engaging, practical and more importantly encourage the thinking process to solve problems. The structured workshops ensures progressive learning and the application of new skills in each session.

Suitable for ages 7 to 12. This school holiday workshop run for 3 hours per day from 2PM to 5PM over two (2) days on 3 & 4 October 2017.

Day 1 - Introduction to coding concepts, technology, robotics, Block coding (VPL), robotics, the App and compass use. Learning areas include spacial awareness, navigation, logic, math, geometry (shapes and angles), physics and computer science concepts, critical thinking and problem solving.

Day 2 - Obstacle course design and coding. Introduce measurements a,d Time, Speed and Distance concepts. Build on lessons from previous session and introduce LOOPs, then moving on to design, build, measure, survey, test, race and perfect their codes on race course they design. Learning areas include maths (linear relationships), physics,computer science and engineering concepts, critical thinking and problem solving.

Parents are encouraged to join in and learn with their children but not essential. Each participant is assigned an individual robot to use during the workshops. Learning materials and light refreshment are provided. Places are limited to ensure a focused learning environment.
