Join us for a rally of robots, as we learn to program them to race, and perform planned functions. Robots may include Sphero, LEGO Mindstorms EV3, Ozobots. Students will learn how to engineer solutions to challenges, obstacles courses, and tasks, program and control the robots to react and perform autonomous actions. Different leveled robots and tasks make this course perfect for beginners through experienced students.
Game Design in Python-Line Coding
11/1 - 12/20, Wednesdays, 3:10 – 4:40 pm ( 7 classes)
If enrolling in Session #1 and #2, $30 Discount available. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for Coupon Code after registering for Session #1 and PRIOR to registering for Session #2.
Game based learning line coding in Python - a real-world coding language.
Students will work 1-1 on computers in a gamified world coding their character
to react in real time to mazes, obstacles and risks in a knights and castle
themed theme. Each command must be given in line code, with game leveling
up stepping up the complexity.
The course is designed with ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) and CSTA (Computer Science Teacher Association) standards, teaching real-world aspects of computer science skills.
Students are engaged, having fun and able to work at their own pace. Syllabus
has unique content approved for upper elementary, middle and high school
levels. Ongoing game hints appear automatically to guide and assist the
student, while the instructor provides group based understanding, discussion,
collaboration, and individual support.
Python programmers are in demand today! Get your student started on real-world
coding language skills.
Students must have keyboarding familiarity.
Wednesdays, 3:10 – 4:40pm, Sept 13, 2017 -Oct 25. (7 wks)
Coding Costumes (Costume Hacking) - 5th-8th grades:
Learn to Code Arduino circuits, customizing controlling lights and sound. Final
project will be a wearable light and sound sewn circuit, to insert into a costume or
costume accessory (e-Textiles costume hacking).
All classes will be hands-on, 1-to-1 computers, coding design, problem-solving,
trouble shooting and collaborating with classmates as each student learns and
applies Arduino code and creating their own take home coded costume project.
$180/student (includes a $60/student take home Lilypad kit fee)
Students should bring their own costumes or costume accessory, to insert the sewn
