All About the Course
Let’s continue our coding adventure!
In this follow-up bootcamp for preschoolers, they’ll be building on top of their existing knowledge of ScratchJr and create a maze game. They’ll learn the concept of Broadcast and how to apply it in a game environment. This bootcamp series also introduces Sammy the Sandwich robot, and kids will get acquainted with Sammy and friends while programming them to reach various goals!
Play to Learn with Sammy
Through unplugged activities, we leverage the power of kinesthetic learning to channel that energy towards a play-based approach to learning about the world of tech. With the help of their new friend, the award-winning Sammy the Robot, kids get building and programming together to help him overcome challenges and perform quests on Code Island.
Weaving in construction with concepts like sequencing – kids learn about programming concepts hands-on. With content interspersed with play, teamwork and inquiry, there’s never a dull moment on Code Island.
Along the way, kids will also learn about the importance of teamwork and collaboration as they work with their friends to build Sammy and navigate Sammy’s world!
