It’s time to kick off with some coding! How about allowing those whom love soccer to make your own scoreboard with a few household items, and challenge with other soccer enthusiasts to get the highest number of goals score?
We have designed the workshop for 2 days to allow our participants to code to learn and learn to code. During the workshop, they will be exposed to block programming and integrate their programming into microbit. There will be making and coding fun!
During the 2 days, the participants will:
I. Learn about MicroBit
II. Code to Learn
a) Introduction to Computer Science
b) Introduction to MakeBlock Programming
III. Create simple game like scissors paper rock game or Mood radio
IV. Go on to make football goal posts with MicroBit and challenge between teams
V. Game Time
VI. Review on the Learning Outcomes
This workshop aims to provide:
- opportunities to test experimental outcomes, thus laying foundational much-desired research skills
- good understanding of computer science concepts that can serve as the foundation for future study
- goal-setting and independent study skills as they are challenged towards reaching a target
- an environment to develop powerful design skills that they can use in future projects of all types
Micro:bit is available for purchase should the child wish to pre-own it.
No prior experience required.
How do we at KidsCode impart our knowledge to your child?
* We guide your child through step-by-step exercises to create the temperature detector project
* After which we get them to rebuild this project or do a slight variation of it
* We then leave them to build a simple new project from scratch
* We get them to work on this new project without any guidance
* We repeat the process to instil confidence and familiarity
* This recursive training method helps to instil the basics of coder and maker, the sense of adventure and the confidence to explore new ways to code or explore other purposes for micro:bit even after the course has been completed!
