Elementary Coding and Robotics – Bob Campbell
We’ve had a wonderful time this week exploring the digital world of coding & robotics! So far the children have completed introductory computer science lessons on code.org & kodable.com, designed avatars & environments for their own computer game, created interactive artwork using Scratch Jr on iPads, and programmed bee-bot & dashbot robotics equipment. The rest of the week will focus on reinforcing coding skills and computer literacy with games like The Foos, Code Breaker, and Lightbot, exploring virtual reality using google cardboard, and experimenting with augmented reality using a holographic display. I’ve had a blast so far this week and hopefully the kids have as well!
