Scratch, Sphero, Drone
We will impart the basics of programming through Scratch. Scratch is a block-based visual programming language targeted primarily at children. The syntax complexities of a program become obsolete through the block-based visual programming approach helping individual spur interest in programming. Learning the foundations of programming with this course does not require any programming knowledge. Engaging with the activities also helps exercise creativity, imagination, apply logic and create designs.
We also introduce Sphero and engage with it which helps learners bridge the gap from software to hardware. Sphero is a programmable robot which sparks curiosity, creativity, and invention through plug and play. Together with the Sphero Edu App (similar to Scratch), programming a sequence of instructions for sphero is no sweat. We will learn to control sphero to traverse through an obstacle course and also learn to programmatically conduct a patrolling mission. This course will bring enjoyment and spark interest to the young ones.
Last but NOT least, this course will also introduce the drone wherein we will dig into the basic programming pieces of launching a flight mission. You will be able to manually create codes to launch your flight missions and also pass through an obstacle course.
