Basics of Code 3M - Dec Coding Camp for Ages 8 - 11

Once your kid has programmed in Scratch for a while, it's natural to ask yourself what comes next. How do you level up your kids to ensure they are progressing their coding skills? The blocks-to-syntax series answers that question directly.

Basics of Code 3M serves as an entry point to Code Campus for kids who have had prior coding experience in a coding environment like Scratch. Code Campers will take the Computer Science concepts learned in previous courses and apply them to programming the micro:bit, an affordable, powerful mini-processor that can be adapted to control anything from air conditioners to washing machines and game controllers. Coding the micro:bit can be done in both a Blocks editor, as well as in Python. This allows us to compare structurally equivalent programs produced in each environment side-by-side, allowing students to learn Python by leveraging their block-based coding skills through analogy. The micro:bit is accessible by a Blocks Editor, which is an interface similar to that encountered in Scratch, or via a Python editor. Code Campers will thus slowly transition to the Python editor over the course of this blocks-to-syntax sequence. The unique multi-language feature of the micro:bit allows us to bridge the syntax divide - functionally identical programs are compared side-by-side so kids are introduced to syntax by example.

Course Schedule

Lessons will be conducted from Monday to Friday, 11 Dec - 15 Dec, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm, at our brand new premises at #03-04 Parkway Centre.
