Balmain Public School, Coding Course Term 1, 2018

Coding Courses for Y2 – Y6 students


The Coding Fundamentals, Intermediate course consists of four levels and 25 sophisticated software projects, which students develop using block-based programming environment Scratch (MIT). 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), user interface design and user input validation. Students will both be guided through the creation of projects such as Two-Player and Quiz games and will be given an opportunity to define and develop their own projects independently with a minimal guidance. The benefit of this project based curriculum is that students at the end of this stage are able to accomplish a number of original projects themselves, hence they understand the subject matter more deeply.
