Weekly Coding Courses for Y2 – Y6 Students in Lane Cove

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Level

Join our weekly coding courses for kids at Lane Cove West 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 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 and will be allowed to work on their projects independently.

CODING ADVANCED

Join our weekly coding courses for kids at Lane Cove West Public School. During the Advanced coding course, students will be introduced to a simplified version of Java language and will make their first step into text-based coding. Students will use both Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab) and more advanced integrated development environment (IDE) Processing to learn how to write code in Java. Students will both be guided through and encouraged to work independently on their games and animations in order to achieve a specific goal. At the end of the Advanced course, students should be able to build a number of projects themselves.
