  • Discover how code can be used to make a real difference to global problems
  • The 2nd of 4 sequential, intermediate modules centered around applying web-based technology to create tangible projects that make an impact
Amazing Animations, Pressing Problems, & Story-telling for Social Impact.
First, warmin’ up their coding and creative juices, kids will recap what they learned about HTML and CSS in Module 1. But this ain’t your regular exercise in revision – kids will put what they learned in Module 1 to good use by creating a nifty website – based on research and the power of their imagination – to share a creative biography or resume of a personal hero who’s made a positive impact on the world.
Next, kids will be introduced to coding with basic Javascript.
Combining the power of Javascript with CSS, kids’ll learn all about styling websites and how that shapes the content and stories we consume so much of online.
Moving onto exploring the importance of storytelling in the context of social issues, kids will discover how to apply javascript to code up an interactive story of their own.
Combining logical thinking, creativity and the technical skills they’ve learned to build a choose your own adventure story, rooted in the realities of the wicked problems the world is facing.
By the end of this course, kids will have a solid grasp of the role of web-based content in inspiring social change and communicating big ideas, with an understanding of how websites and interactive narratives are designed and engineered to achieve intended outcomes and objectives. All this will put them in good stead for Module 3: Crazy Curves, Slammin’ Simulations, & Monstrous Models, where they’ll discover how code can create powerful models and simulations to communicate the urgency of pressing global problems.

Oh! The stuff you'll learn...

  • Introduction to basic Javascript and interactive web-based projects
  • Learn more about CSS to style websites and communicate ideas
  • Explore the role of storytelling in shaping social issues and spreading big ideas
  • Create a choose-your-own-adventure story game that synergises the technical skills you’ve learned with issues you’re passionate about, and share it with your friends and family to make an impact!

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.

Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.
