Learning outcomes

In this course, students will take their Scratch Skills to the next level. Learn to modify games, code collaboratively, and problem solve using block-based coding. Whether they are just taking the first steps on their coding journey, or have been working with Scratch for years, students will practise and develop a creative problem solving mindset using code..

Students will learn how to harness the power of Functions, Loops, Algorithms, and even some Machine Learning! 

 

Information for parents

Whether your child is completely new to coding and robotics, or has completed a BlueShift camp or course before, this course is perfect for them! Bringing a laptop is recommended if possible as students learn more effectively with a device that they are familiar with.

Camp structure

This is a sample schedule for a typical day at camp. In between each lesson there will be a 15-minute snack break, or a 1-hour lunch and play break.
10.00 - 11.00
Lesson 1
First off we'll get to know our teacher and classmates through some great mini games. Once we're all friends, we'll be introduced to our activity for the day. Let's jump in to coding!
11.15 - 12.30
Lesson 2
Now that we've had a healthy snack, we're ready to get right back into our activity. We'll carry on flexing our creative muscles by designing, coding and building our project.
13.30 - 14.45
Lesson 3
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
15.00 - 16.00
Lesson 4
It's time to finish off our project for the day and show it off to the rest of the class. Time has flown by - lets tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!
My favourite part was designing my own dinosaur!
