Ellipsis Tech - Intro to Programming (Cameron, Jun 20 – Jun 23, 2022)
Ellipsis Tech - Introduction to Programming
Introduce your students to programming and computer science concepts in a fun and exciting way! Students will use Microsoft's block coding within Minecraft: Education Edition to learn essential coding concepts, including variables, basic loops and conditional logic and apply these concepts to create interactive games, solve puzzles and collaborate with other students to overcome challenges! Students will complete projects ranging from programming an assistant to complete basic tasks, modifying the world around them with code, to working as a team to find hidden treasure they can't see! Microsoft's code blocks is a block based programming language that uses different colored and shaped blocks that connect together in specific order to allow beginners to learn and explore coding concepts without having to worry about typing keywords.
All projects and activities are designed to allow students to apply their newly found knowledge, use their creativity while learning coding and have fun exploring! This class provides a strong foundation for your student’s coding skills and also helping build other important life skills such as like creative problem-solving, collaboration, communication, and methodical thinking.
This class is intended for students who are beginners and have limited or no prior basic coding experience. During class, students will use a Minecraft: Education Edition account provided by Ellipsis Academy to join other students in an exciting Minecraft coding world. Students will have opportunities to work in both a virtual classroom environment as well as sandbox world to put their knowledge to the test and explore new ideas!
