Basics 2 A/B is a 2-course series (taken in any order) that focuses on the practical application of the coding concepts learnt in Basics 1
. The project-based approach
to learning how to code in these courses provide ample opportunities to our youngest Code Campers to cement their understanding of the basic coding concepts. In addition to sequencing
, new coding concepts such as conditionals
(how computers can make decisions, if you would let them) will also be introduced as kids gain familiarity with the nature of code.
Code Campers will be reunited with their beloved Dash
, programming it to do a variety of more complex tasks in increasingly imaginative scenarios. They will also gain exposure and depth of understanding of how to code in Scratch
to build more intricate and elaborate programs on Campus, including their very own fairy tale story and music animation
! By exploring a wider range of programming language blocks and concepts, kids will develop their skills and understanding though practice and application, while building their confidence to explore new territory in the world of code. They will hone their ability to think more logically and computationally, and combine this with their innate creativity and imagination to turn their ideas into reality using computers! Students will also continue sharpening their keyboard and mouse handling skills
to build dexterity and basic computer literacy.
After this series of courses, Code Campers will have a firmer understanding of the fundamental coding concepts and a better appreciation of how to create a variety of exciting projects that will enable them to progress comfortably along the Basics sequence
. They will now be able to control the flow of a program and create their own artistic masterpieces with code.
We've got a whole collection of coding projects here
