We offer Honeycode because our children need to be creators, and not just consumers of technology. As our world becomes increasingly more tech-dependent, the best way to ensure future success is for children to become tech-savvy today. However, we want our students to go beyond being able to teach us how to change the wallpaper on our iPhone! They need to learn the language of technology, so that when they grow up, they can create and contribute with the best of them.
None! This is an intro course.
Open to grades 3rd - 6th
This LIMITED RUN program will be featured at select schools this Spring.
Our Video Game Design & Code a Creature courses will be launching at the following schools:
SCRATCH Video Game Design Course
Honey Code Video Game Design is available to students 3rd through 6th grade. It is an intro to coding course, so there is no previous experience necessary. Students will program using Scratch, while they develop skills in problem solving, sequencing, logic, and engineering. Students will also be using Makey Makeys to program and build a hands-on interactive game controller. Students will also engage in unplugged programming challenges to reinforce the concepts they learn. All participants will end the session with a USB drive of their Scratch video game.
Oak Meadow Elementary(El Dorado Hills), begins 3/6
Code-a-Creature is an intro to coding course; available to students 3rd through 6th grade. Students will use a program called Scratch - developed at MIT - to develop skills in problem-solving, sequencing, and logic. In the beginning of this course, students will create a creature from their own imagination using a laptop. They will then bring this creature to life by representing him physically using cardboard and foam. Students will then program their creature to perform certain actions on screen, when the physical buttons on their creature are touched. In this way, they will learn to code a narrative into their very own creature! All participants will end the session with a USB drive containing the Scratch stories of their creature.
