Basics 3 @MP : Jan-Feb 2019 Weekly | Sun | 200pm - 400pm
FUNDAMENTALS & DATA TYPES WITH MICRO:BIT
No prior coding experience necessary; prospective students must turn 11 or 12 years old within the current calendar year OR
Have completed Basics 2 R/G/B
Basics 3 serves as an entry point to SG Code Campus for kids aged 11-12 who have had no prior coding experience, and as a follow-on course for students who have completed Basics 2 R/G/B. Similar to Basics 1, this course introduces them to the fundamentals of coding and computer science, but at a faster pace and with more learning objectives. Students will solidify their conceptual understanding of the fundamentals, deepen their understanding of data types as well as hone their logical-thinking skills.
Each Code Camper is provided with a micro:bit - an affordable, powerful and interactive mini-processor that can be adapted for various applications, including sensors, games and LED displays. Code Campers will use the block-based code editor to program the micro:bit so that they stay within the familiar environment of block-based programming (as they had done in Scratch). Given that there is a hardware element to the micro:bit, they will also gain familiarity with sensors, troubleshooting hardware and connectivity considerations.
At the end of this course, Code Campers will be able to use the micro:bit to create projects that that respond to user actions, sensor output or other scripts within their program. Students will also appreciate that different programming languages are good for doing different things.
This is a 5-lesson course. Lessons will be conducted every Sunday, 20 Jan - 17 Feb 2019, 200pm - 400pm, 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.
