About THis CLASS
Build upon your coding skills, or get an accelerated introduction, in this fun and engaging class! We start out with visual based coding tools and transition into languages such as Python and CoffeeScript. Kids will learn the fundamentals of coding as well as more advanced topics. Students build this knowledge through project-based learning by designing, creating, and playing their own games and projects.
Working in pairs, teams, and individually, students learn computational thinking, principles of automation, decompositional thinking, problem solving, collaboration, abstraction, and pattern recognition. Projects include making a two player shooter game, customizing arcade style games, creating their own drawing and design tools, learning to program a physics engine, and controlling actions/shapes/movement/sounds of their characters and game mechanics.
This is an awesome class that allows kids to experience first-hand the output of their code. Kids love designing their own games, and seeing their code in action!
WHO WILL LOVE THIS class?
- Students who are relatively new to coding but want a fast-paced introduction while transitioning into coding with Python and CoffeeScript.
- Students who have some experience with coding and want to take it to the next level with more advanced projects.
- Parents who want their students to start exploring traditional coding languages like Python and CoffeeScript.
