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 workshop runs for 1.5 hours once a week on Saturday's from 2PM to 3:30PM over four weeks commencing on 14 October, then 21 October, 28 October and concluding on 4 November 2017.

Week 2 - Coding activities and games integrated with STEM concepts and learn about linear relationships in time, speed and distance. Learning Areas include measuring, logic, math, physics and computer science concepts, critical thinking and problem solving.

Week 3 - Introduction to LOOPs. Commence obstacle Race Course design and coding. Learning Areas include measuring, math, physics, computer science and engineering concepts, critical thinking and problem solving.
