Computer Science

Introduction to Computer Science - Kodable

Students are introduced to basic coding skills. They also learn a history of computer science. Important vocabulary include debugging, sequence, loops, conditionals, and functions. Students work online to practice beginning coding skills using block coding.

Robotics

In the Robotics Unit, students are introduced to Dash and Dot. Students use iPads to code for their robots. Students learn to connect to the robots and have them interact with one another. In this unit students practice the skills they learned in Kodable as they continue with block coding.

 

Scratch

In this unit students will have an opportunity to build animations. They will be able to create movies and games they are only limited by their imagination. Students will return to their understanding of block coding and introduce the idea of sprites (characters) to control and have interact.
