SCRATCH 1 & 2
Scratch is a graphical programming language, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Using drag and combine code blocks, your child will learn to make a range of programs, including animations, stories, musical instruments and games. It’s a bit like the programming equivalent of LEGO! Scratch allows children to learn coding concepts and create interactive projects without needing to learn a text-based programming language. This means they won’t be slowed down by their keyboard skills or the ability to remember complex code.
Build an immersive universe with an introduction to fundamental game design principles, creating unique games. Starting with traditional game theory, this course is an introduction to the primary concepts of gaming, and an exploration of how these basic concepts affect the way gamers interact with our games. In this course you will understand what defines a “game” and the mechanics and rules behind different types of games. Moving beyond the basic principles of game design, students will use Roblox and Minecraft to put their own inventive twist on the games! AGES: 10-12 SKILL LEVEL: Beginner - Advanced PATH: Coding, Game Development, Design
PYTHON 1 & 2
Python is a cross-platform language—allowing one to build web applications as well as interface with hardware components connected to a computer, such as the Raspberry Pi. This makes Python the perfect language to start learning the ins and outs of coding. Your child will use new found programming knowledge to explore and complete various project-based tasks each carefully designed to expand their technical knowledge and skills.
