Description

Explore one of the most commonly used computer coding languages, JavaScript, as you build Minecraft structures and automate routine mining in a custom Minecraft world! Students learn to code and program automated characters to use in their mining and building, while learning syntax, logic, coding vocabulary, methods, and more. Students will learn and explore loops, decision-making, and variable commands. All students will work 1:1 on laptops or Chromebooks, while also practicing collaboration and teamwork with other classmates. Teacher controls the custom world that the students are in, and the students do not interact online with other individuals outside the classroom. New learners welcome - no prior coding experience necessary!

AR/VR – Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

Students explore the difference between Augmented versus Virtual Reality, using different apps and software to learn other content knowledge via a new method of information delivery. Students will work with tablets and Merge Cubes to see augmented reality come to life. Additional programs will demonstrate current commercial use of augmented reality in marketing materials, training and more. Students will learn about the difference of Virtual Reality using educational grade Merge headsets, and explore commercial versions and uses of VR equipment.

Students learn how to create their own Augmented Reality content, tie it to “triggers” and launch their own presentations with phones or tablets, to take their audience on a virtual museum walk of their own learning.

Circuit Game & Python Coding – Micro:bit

Circuit Game & Python Coding – Micro:bit:

  • Tuesdays
  • January 21st - March 3rd, 2020 (7 weeks)
  • 4:05-5:30 pm
  • $175 per student (includes a take home Micro:bit game board)
  • Minimum # of students = 6 / Maximum # of students = 15
  • 6th-8th graders
  • Register online at https://www.codespire.org/

Students will receive a Micro:bit game board to keep, and will learn how to code it for multiple games. Coding will use Python and the Micro:bit dashboard. Classes will teach students coding in Python line coding as well as the Micro:bit dashboard.  Additional lessons will include basic coding in a basic Python IDE environment.

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 take home kit).

Learn beginning coding and code a game for your pocket!

Join us as we code and program robots of all kinds. In our robotics classes, students will learn to code and program in different languages and apply the code to different robots. Programming for beginning levels starts with block style programming, moving into more complex customized program blocks and routines. Advanced level robotics work in line-coding real-world languages to instruct and control the robots. Each class series has exciting challenges and mini competitions, to push our learning to applied problem solving.
