 Students will need a reliable laptop with WiFi access and a fully charged battery.

This will be a fun, hands on introduction to keyboarding and coding, or “how computers think”. Children will work with visual coding blocks as they explore such topics as events, conditions, variables, loops, sensing, and conditional statements. We will also use a variety of pen and paper puzzles and activities to reinforce this knowledge.  By the end of the year, each student will design his or her own simple game - such as pong.

We will also spend 10 minutes each class period working on our basic keyboarding skills using the program Keyboarding Without Tears.  Students will need to practice at least twice each week to maintain and improve these skills.
