Description

This coding club is aimed at teaching children the basics of computer history, computer programs and computer programming.  In the early 80‘s and 90‘s, there was a buzz in the air with everyone coding and producing useful programs and games, whether in their homes or in big corporations.  As computers became more advance, coding became more a specialists trade. But with the advent of small mobile phone and tablet apps, this buzz has returned and now the young and independent are coding once again.  And with the government making it now mandatory for schools to offer coding as part of their curriculum, the need for coding has grown even more.

Coding Curriculum

This course introduces the student to the world of computing, teaching them what ‘to compute’ really means, both historically and in terms of modern applications.
This module concludes with an optional trip to a museum dedicated to computers and computing.

After understanding what computing is, the student will progress to making 12 games & programs. They will learn such concepts as:
•Loops & Conditional Loops
•Variables, Sprites and program resources
•X & Y co-ordinates
•Basic animation & Cloaning

After learning the basics of computer programming, each student will be given three project programs and games to develop over 10 weeks. These projects will draw upon their knowledge in implementing their ideas, and will give them the opportunity to be creative and innovative.
