Mosman Art Gallery, Coding Courses Term 3, 2018

Coding Courses for Y2 – Y12 Students

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, 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 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 (MIT) 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.

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, 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 (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.

PRO CODING

The Pro coding courses are designed for high school students, who want to make a step into text-based coding. At this stage, students are introduced and encouraged to start using industry standard such as JavaScript, Python, Processing, Unity 3D & C# , Arduino and Lego Robotics. These languages and platforms are great for learning computer science concepts and their environment can be easily accessed outside the classroom. The main goal of each Pro course is to make sure students are able to create independent coding or robotics projects by the end of each term. Pre-requisites: Y7 – Y11 students require no prior experience to attend the Pro courses. Primary school students can only take part in these courses if they have completed a full year of Advanced level and our teacher feels they will be confident enough to move up.
