By the end, kids are not only introduced to important programming concepts in a gentle visual programming interface, they will understand how objects can be created with a mix of both hardware & software & go on to create their very own inventions. The possibilities are ENDLESS!
Keepin’ it Short & Snappy
- Coding + Hands-On
- Requires Start with Scratch: Adventures in Time or Equivalent block-based programming experience
- Visual coding interface: Perfect for younger kids
- Continue the Learning: Bring your micro:bit home
This is a BBC micro:bit.
It’s a “pocket-sized micro-computer” designed by BBC for computer education in the UK that allows you to create super cool inventions. Kids use a simple block editor interface to create…
A heart beat.
A Rock, Paper, Scissors Handheld Game. That ROCKS!
A Don’t touch the wire circuit game.
Kids learn not only to code, but to apply their new found programming superpowers to a variety of real world projects. This all culminates in a final project where kids build and code a remote controlled car!
- Code a beating LED Heart with micro:bit
- Make it Useful – Code a Random Dice
- Sound it out – Make a Keyboard, Shaky hand buzzer game
- Code a Rock, Paper, Scissors Game
- Build Mini Games with the Radio feature on micro:bit
- Project Time: Build a Remote Controlled Car
- Share & Present
No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.
