Coding Advance - Grades 5-8


The advance coding class is designed to make a student think independently and propose solutions for a problem. They are encouraged to solve a task. Projects are taken from the problem to design to develop a solution. The main coding principles taught are sequences, events, loops, operators, conditionals, functions, and data. 

We will be using the Raspberry Pi with the Pi Grove sensors in the advance coding class. Some of the Grove sensors we will be using are temperature and humidity, rotary angle sensor, buzzer, LEDs, sensor cables, relay LCD, and ultrasonic range sensors. In the coding advance class, students will learn sophisticated commands and solve complex logic scenarios. Most importantly, students are introduced to a new programming language: Python. Python is a very approachable programming language and is suitable for young programmer ages 12 & up. Python gives them access to a wider range of commands and controls. Students will work hands-on in teams of 2-3 to complete a set of increasingly complex builds like a Home Weather station, Sensor Twitter Feed and Tilt Buzzer. This is the only class where your child will be learning to transition to Python code in a seamless manner. Students will start to code with Scratch and then transition to Python in this class. This transition from Scratch to Python is very easy because it is visual. Students learn Python faster with this method of instruction, and they gain a strong base of Python syntax.

 

The Advanced Level is comprised of 6 x 8-week sessions. If a student has not completed Coding Intermediate, and they would like to enroll for Coding Advanced Level class. Then, they must take 2 x 8-week session of Coding Intermediate Class and they must successfully pass the placement test.
