Coding for Kids in Neutral Bay, Neutral Bay Public School, Term 4, 2018

Weekly Coding Courses for Y1 – Y6 Students

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Beginners Level

Join our weekly Coding Classes for kids in Neutral Bay. 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.

CODING FUNDAMENTALS, Intermediate Level

Join our weekly Coding Classes for kids in Neutral Bay. 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), 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 are able to accomplish a number of original projects themselves, hence they understand the subject matter more deeply.

CODING ADVANCED

Join our weekly Coding Classes for kids in Neutral Bay. During the Advanced coding course, students use both Scratch (developed by MIT Media Lab) and more advanced integrated development environment (IDE) Processing (developed by MIT Media Lab). During this course, students will be introduced to a simplified version of Java language using Processing environment, which helps students to make their first steps into text-based coding. Students will also learn more advanced computer science concepts, maths and physics in order to build more sophisticated projects, simulations and app prototypes. Students will both be guided through and encouraged to work independently in order to achieve a specific goal. At the end of the Advanced course, students should be able to build a number of sophisticated projects themselves.
