Coding & Tinkering
Coding students are working on the Discoveries curriculum through Code.org. They are learning to code in HTML and CSS, first completing a personal website in Unit 2 and then moving into creating Animations and Games in Unit 3. This is challenging material and requires a great deal of perseverance and focus.
Students in Tinkering are continuing with projects and builds of their choosing. Many are busy with the Scratch coding website and others have been enjoying Sphero balls or building robots and gadgets of their own design using Lego Mindstorm materials.
They are also accountable for completion of the CSFirst (through Google) Music and Sound Club, which involves 8 activities designed to build coding and general computer science skills.
