Our Current Programs:
Module 1: Welcome to Coding with Makecode
Our total beginner’s introduction to coding and using Makecode. Taking an open source platform for creating engaging computer science learning experiences that supports a progression path into real-world programming.
Existing users can use this course as a refresher, to remind themselves of terminology and methodology.
Module 1b: Extending the micro:bit and Makecode
In this module, take your micro:bit and Makecode to the next level by learning how to use more complex features on the micro:bit, whilst doing more intricate coding in Makecode. It focuses on a lot of the sensory data and pins, like temperature, direction, acceleration and light levels, along with a few builds away from the mirco:bit using the pins.
Module 3: Introduction to Engineering
This module is an introduction to engineering concepts and terminology, you will have the opportunity to build inventions and build a wooden toys. It will be enhanced by using your micro:bit and inventors kits. Thereafter you will be able to create your own inventions to help solve some of our worldly problems.
Module 5a: Introduction to Coding in Minecraft
In this module, MakeCode, opens a doorway between your coding environment and the real Minecraft program. Using this access, you can write programming logic that manipulates the Minecraft world. Your code can grow flowers, make chickens rain from the sky, and build massive walls. Come learn how to take your Minecraft experiences to a whole new 'coded' level.
Module 1a: Introduction to coding
Learn how to use your micro:bit (which normally comes with this course) and learn how to code using the Makecode block editor. This course can be done with or without getting your own micro:bit, currently in lock down we cannot deliver micro:bits to our clients (as soon as we can deliver we will inform you). We investigate using the Makecode platform to build some fantastic interactive programs and build on our previous knowledge from Module 1.
Module 1c: Introduction to Robotics (Electronics)
In this module students get hands-on experience of learning to design, build and program robots of increasing complexity. This greatly boosts students' teamwork and problem-solving abilities, while helping them to learn how abstract concepts of mathematics, engineering and computing actually work in practice. Students get to keep their own starter kit, comprising of a breadboard, LED’s, motors and servo.
Module 4a: Introduction to Arcade
