Slavens-Beginning Game Design-
- Early Release Friday-Nov
- November 16, 2018
- 12:00-3:15 pm
- 1st-6th Graders
Gamers will try coding and making a video game. This is for beginning
through advanced game designers that are eager to learn to code.
Unique curriculum will get them excited about coding by teaching them
to build their own video games, while also challenging older students
with real-world coding languages! Younger students will use a block-based
software and basic coding to develop a video game unique to
each student’s imagination. Older students will begin coding in Python
movements. The class is limited to 15 students.
Beginning Robotics at Slavens School
- Session 2 - Nov 1- Dec 20,
- 3:10 – 4:40 pm
- 1st-3rd grades
This is a fun, beginning robotics experience. Students will work with the Edison Robots. These robots will use light sensors to follow lines, detect & avoid obstacles, or play bumper cars! Students will learn how to command with the robot to speed up, spin, start or stop, see obstacles (or other robots) and follow their custom commands. Depending on skills progression, additional robots may be brought in for more challenges.
Game Design & Coding – Micro:bit & more:
- September 19th - November 17th
(NO after school enrichment classes the week of October 22nd)
- $175 per student (includes a $25/student materials fee for a take home Micro:bit game board)
- Minimum # = 6/Maximum # = 15
- 6th-8th graders
Students will receive a Micro:bit game board to keep, and will learn how to code it for multiple games. Coding can be built using a block editor, mobile apps, or Python. Classes will teach students coding in each programming system.
The BBC micro:bit is a pocket-sized computer that lets you get creative with digital technology. Each order contains just the micro:bit board. You can code, customize and control your micro:bit from anywhere! You can use your micro:bit for all sorts of unique creations, from robots to musical instruments and more. At half the size of a credit card, you will be surprised at the amount of hardware each board is equipped with, including 25 red LED lights that can flash messages. There are two programmable buttons that can be used to control games or pause and skip songs on a playlist. The micro:bit can even detect motion and tell you which direction you’re heading. It can also use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to interact with other devices and the Internet. (Class fee includes a $25/student take home kit fee).
