Basics 1 @MP : Mar - Apr Weekly | Sat | 1130am - 130pm
Basics 1 - Weekly Course for Ages 9 - 10
STARTING WITH SCRATCH
No prior coding experience necessary
Prospective students must turn 9 or 10 years old within the current calendar year (for 11-12 year-olds with no prior coding experience, please proceed to Basics 3)
Basics 1 is SG Code Campus' foundational course for young beginners. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of coding and computer science, and subsequently learn to program their own computer game using the visual programming language Scratch.
We will touch on the nature of computers - where they are found, why they are useful, and how they work. Code Campers will come to recognise code as a language used to instruct computers, and learn how to use basic coding tools such as loops (computers are great at repetitive tasks so exploit that!), conditionals (enable computers to make decisions), variables (tap on the computer’s vast memory) and events (get computers to react to various triggers) to tackle complex problems.
After this course, kids will be able to collaborate with others to devise computer-based solutions to problems and build basic programs using the Scratch platform.
This is a 5-lesson course. Lessons will be conducted every Saturday, 30 Mar - 27 Apr 2019, 1130am-130pm, at our Marine Parade Campus (#03-04 Parkway Centre).
**Do note that we require a minimum of 2 Code Campers to start a class. You will be fully refunded if the class minimum is not fulfilled.
