Computer Science Projects:

Note:  All students practice with Type to Learn 4, check Email, iPass (grades 6 , 7, and 8), and work with coding at Code.org as instructed during class.

All students will also be participating using Google Classroom and will be maintaining a Computer Science Portfolio using Google Slides

  
  Python Mad Libs Project (8th Grade only during 2017-2018)
  • Students learn about text based coding as they create a Python program to simulate a Mad Libs activity.
  
  Code Combat Project (8th Grade only during 2017-2018)
  • Students learn about methods, loops, variables, and arguments as they solve problems in a game based environment.
 

  Coding Review Project
  • Students experience a variety of coding activities and create 2 slides in their portfolio describing their activity.
  • They incorporate a screenshot, and a photo, as well as appropriate text explaining them.
 
 
  VEX IQ Project
  • Students will complete a small building project to familiarize them with the building materials of the VEX system.
  • Students learn about Engineering and Robotics with a short presentation and quiz.
  • Students practice driving the base vehicle using the controller
  • Students begin using ROBOTC to program the base vehicle to operate autonomously.
 
  Code.org Art Project
  • Students create and artistic design using one of the drawing puzzles at code.org
  • Some students will exhibit their artwork at the Fine Arts Night.
 
  Vernier Sensors Projects
  • Students use Google Sheets and one of a variety of Vernier Sensors to solve a "possible" problem at Fowler School.

Also, students participate during free time with Minetest to practice construction, cooperation, collaboration, and communication.
