Coding Fundamentals: Beginners & Intermediate Courses

CODING  FUNDAMENTALS

Coding Courses for Y1 – Y7

BEGINNERS

The Coding Fundamentals, Beginners coding course consists of four levels and 25 projects, which students develop throughout the course. The main goal of the course is to ensure students understand the fundamentals of coding and are able to create software projects including a famous Breakout game, developed by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Slither.io, created by Steve Howse. Using block-based coding in Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab) students will be introduced to the main computer science concepts & coding terminology such as loops, conditionals and variables. Students will be closely guided through creation of the projects and will be allowed to work on their games and animations independently.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INTERMEDIATE

The Coding Fundamentals, Intermediate coding course consists of four levels and 25 sophisticated software projects, which students develop using block-based programming environment Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab). During this course students will learn and apply more complex computer science concepts such as booleans, recursive algorithms and lists. Students will also be introduced to the basics of Artificial Intelligence (AI), and user interface designStudents will be given an opportunity to develop their own projects independently with a minimal guidance. The benefit of this approach is that students are able to accomplish a number of projects themselves, hence they understand the subject matter more deeply.
