In this introduction to robotics and coding, students will learn tools and concepts related to computer science. Using robots such as Ozobots, Cubelets, robots Dash and Dot, Cubetto and coding programs such as Scratch Jr/regular Scratch and Ozoblockly, students will explore robotics and coding through games, while also learning specific computer science concepts and reinforcing math skills, such as counting and number recognition. Students will also be introduced to loops and functions, algorithms, conditional statements and more. Students will be divided into groups based on experience level and age.

In this coding class, students will learn how to code as a tangible tool to explore how programming can affect the physical world. Students will create complex stories and design their own games using the MIT-designed programming tool, Scratch. Students will learn about variables, events, parallelism, conditional statements, and basic syntax. In addition to Scratch, students will have a chance to learn coding through other hands-on tools such Sphero, Lego Boost and Ozoblockly. This class is designed for students with an interest in coding. Prior experience with coding is not necessary.

Coding: 4th Grade/5th Grade (Intermediate): Thursdays, 4:30-5:15 PM September 17-November 19 

Through hands-on coding tools such as Scratch, Javascript, Python, Lego Mindstorms and more, programmers will work in teams to design their own games, code robots and address real world challenges using coding. Students will learn about arguments, arrays, strings, variables, boolean, objects and more. This class is designed for students in the appropriate grade levels. Prior experience with coding is useful but not required.

Length: 10 weeks
