Coding Playground with JavaScript and Blocks

September 21, 2019 @ 3:15 pm - December 7, 2019 @ 4:45 pm


Coding Playground with JavaScript and Blocks

In this course, children will enhance their skills in coding and physical computing by using Circuit Playground and working with Java Script and blocks. They will deepen their understanding of foundational coding concepts through JavaScript and physical computing. In this transition course from blocks to the world of real code with JavaScript, kids will be introduced to more advanced coding concepts such as arrays and functions. At the same time, they will be able to interact and control LEDs, buttons and variety of sensors by using JavaScript.

Toward the end of the course, children will start working on their own creative physical computing projects, that reflect their learning, creative choices and personal interests. Kids might use the 3D printer to print their models to support their projects.

By joining this course, children will accomplish many technical, personal, and social learning goals:

Technical goals:

  • Review the components of Circuits Playground
  • Control Sensors, LEDs, Temperature sensors and Speakers by using JavaScript
  • Learn how to use arrays and functions by using blocks.
  • Design, plan and create their own projects.

Personal and Social goals:

  • Enrich personal curiosity
  • Nurture passion for learning, exploration, and discovery
  • Creative self- expression through design, making and creating.
  • Working within team (communication, collaboration, conflict resolution, and negotiation).
  • Making friends and have fun with a group of peers.

Who can register?

  • Any child with basic knowledge in coding with blocks such as scratch or makecode.

This coding course will run in fall 2019, each Saturday from 3:15 to 4:45 pm
