Coding Courses for Kids in Balmain, Term 1, 2020

Weekly Coding Courses for Y2 – Y7 Students in Balmain

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Level

Join our weekly coding courses for kids in Balmain at Birchgrove Public School. 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 programming fundamentals and are able to apply their coding skills and knowledge by confidently creating 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, but will be able to individually personalise their projects adding more features and functionality.
