Basics 1 is SG Code Campus' fun and exciting introduction to the world of code for our youngest Code Campers. Through the use of concrete learning aids and visual block-based programming, kids will be invited to explore the world of computers and learn how coding can give them the power to create new possibilities with technology.
Code Campers will be introduced to the Scratch platform
where their imaginations can run wild within the domain of animations and design. Through these two platforms, kids will be introduced to fundamental coding concepts such as:
- Sequencing: Computers only do what you tell them to do, in the order you tell them to.
- Loops: Computers are great at repeating things, so exploit that.
- Events: Computers can react to a wide range of triggers.
Another focus of the Scratch programming course is breaking these abstract concepts down into simpler, more tangible ideas that are easy for younger kids to understand. Basic typing and mouse skills are also taught to help inculcate good computer habits from young, and better prepare kids for the rest of the Basics sequence.
After the Scratch course, Code Campers will appreciate the power of code, have an understanding of coding as a means of instructing computers, and begin to imagine the myriad of possibilities that are achievable with code. With an understanding of the basic coding concepts, kids will be able to create their own animations.
