Description

Basics X Micro:bit 1 (previously Basics 3) - Holiday Coding Camp for Ages 11 - 12


THE INTERNET OF THINGS WITH MICRO:BIT

Prerequisites: We welcome students who have completed Basics 4 A/B with us. For students who are at least 11 years old and have completed Primary 4 in the local school system or Year 4 in the international school system, no prior experience is necessary.

Basics X is a supplementary, topic-based series of courses offered on a seasonal basis featuring topics in block-based computer programming. Each iteration of this course will focus on a specific topic over 8 lessons designed to stimulate kids’ curiosity and challenge them in various technological domains - examples of topics covered in previous iterations include machine learning using Scratch X; the Internet of Things (IoT) exploring hardware using the micro:bit; and Mobile Programming using App Inventor.

This course involves learning about the Internet of Things with micro:bit.

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.

Course Schedule

This is a 8-lesson class. Lessons will be conducted every Saturday, 13 Jul - 31 Aug 2019, 2:00pm-4:00pm, 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.
