We will kick off by learning how to use technology to explore the world, to think critically, to expand our vocabulary, to create and present ideas in an innovative way! We will start with coding using computer science to collaborate with others and develop our problem-solving skills!
In this course students will learn all about computers including programming, algorithms, debugging, loops, and events!
Students will create programs with loops, events, and conditionals. They will translate their initials into binary, investigate different problem-solving techniques, and discuss how to respond to cyber bullying. By the end of the course, students will create interactive games that they can share.
Students will practice coding with algorithms, loops, conditionals, and events before they are introduced to functions. In the second part of the course, students design and create a capstone project they can share.
Covers the basics of programming, collaboration techniques, investigation and critical thinking skills, persistence in the face of difficulty, and internet safety. At the end of this course, students create their very own custom game they can share.
Students develop their understanding of algorithms, nested loops, while loops, conditionals, and events. Beyond coding, students learn about digital citizenship.
Students create programs with different kinds of loops, events, functions, and conditionals. They will also investigate different problem-solving techniques and discuss societal impacts of computing and the internet. In the second part of this course students design and create a capstone project they can share.
