Ellipsis Tech - Intermediate Programming (Cameron, Jun 27 – Jun 30, 2022)
Ellipsis Tech - Intermediate Programming
Advance your students programming and computer science knowledge in a fun and exciting way! Students will use Microsoft's block coding within Minecraft: Education Edition to learn more advanced coding concepts including for loops, functions, and an introduction to AI and apply these concepts to create self-solving mazes, automated building using x,y, and z coordinates, and competitive mini-games. 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 have done some coding Microsoft's MakeCode or a similar language such as Scratch. 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!
