Basics 1 @MP : Jul Camp | Mon - Fri | 11:30am - 1:30pm
Basics 1 - Coding Camp for Ages 8 - 11
STARTING WITH SCRATCH
We welcome students who at least 8 years old and have completed Primary 2 in the local school system or Year 2 in the international school system. No prior coding experience is needed to join this introductory course.
Basics 1 is SG Code Campus' foundational course. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of coding through programming the world's favourite robot - the Star Wars BB8 ©. Students will subsequently learn to program their own music, video games and animation using 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, as well as a means to tackle complex problems.
How do you use computer science to solve a problem? You start by learning how to formulate algorithms (chain tasks together to solve a problem), construct loops (computers are great at repetitive tasks so exploit that!) and rely on conditionals (enable your computer to make decisions). After this course, kids will be able to build basic programs and collaborate with others to devise computer-based solutions to problems.
This is a 5-lesson course. Lessons will be conducted over 5 days, Mon - Fri, 2 Jul - 6 Jul 2018, 11:30am - 1:30pm, at our Marine Parade Campus (#03-04 Parkway Centre).
