Students (Age range: 6 – 10 years old) work in pairs to create a game entirely from scratch. They will learn how to work in teams and plan the development of their games. Show and Tell at the end (for parents). Kids will be trained in mathematical and logical thinking. The fundamentals and reasons behind computer science will be taught in an engaging manner. This complements the subjects that are currently being taught in primary schools.
Requirements: iPad (iOS 8 or greater) & Hopscotch (iPad application)
Students (Age range: 6 – 10 years old) design and build a game (done in teams of 4). They will also present their robotics projects. Learn the fundamental concepts of programming, including conditionals, events, variables, and abstraction. Build a rather complex game using the concepts learned.
Requirements: Laptop (Windows or Mac), Scratch, LEGO Mindstorms OR Microcontroller.
This course is meant for students with an age range: 13-16 yrs old. The goal is for students to gain an intuition for computer science through creating games. The first few weeks guides students with zero knowledge of python or computer science, to create small hands-on projects that illustrate these concepts in an interesting and engaging way. These projects will step up in difficulty, until they manage to build a relatively complex game that makes good use of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) concepts, and effectively manipulate data using Python. Students will then spend the last 4 weeks in groups building their very own game and present it in class, explaining the way they created it.
By the end of the course, students should be confident in reading other people’s code, explaining their code to others, and more importantly, have fun working their imagination to create good games.
Requirements: Laptop (Windows 7 or greater / Mac OS X) & Python 2.7
