As we go through each week, you’ll find the description and link to access live lessons here. Our live lessons are on Tuesday from 1:00 PM to 1:45 PM and Wednesday from 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM. They’ll be uploaded to Youtube and linked here 24 hours after each live class.
Today, you’ll be diving into the advanced mode of the app and create your first animation. We’re gearing up to learn the skills and concepts we’ll need to create our first video game.
Need help? Pop into our virtual office hours. They’re held on Thursdays from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM. You can share your screen, get help de-bugging code, or get ideas for a project you want to pursue. We let 4-6 students in at a time to make sure you get your questions answered! The button below only works when office hours are open. 🙂
During our first class, we meet our instructor, and learn about how coding and computer science power the modern world. We get an overview of how coding played a role in creating the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 produced by Pfiezer and Moderna.
Get an intro into the app and start coding your first pixel project. Sukh walks you through how to draw points on to our grid and put them together to make an awesome piece of pixel art.
Sanyam walks you through how to code shapes, color them, and design them to program a sketch of our house. You’ll learn how to code rectangles, ellipses, lines, and more.
We continue working on our house from class with the addition of some awesome new shapes – specifically the ability to create any polygon that you can imagine. Sanyam answers student questions and does some home improvement.
We’ve already recorded lessons that you can view on your time! After you get your account set up after our 2nd week, you are free to take the class at your own pace. This is a great option for a parent and child to do together as they’ll both walk away with a basic understanding of programming a portfolio of awesome projects to prove it. Everything is uploaded to youtube to ensure that it’s easy to access and doesn’t get cut out by school filters.
Here you’ll start making projects, learn about how to add color to projects, and express yourselves through writing code. You’ll work on assets such as characters and landscapes that you can use in games later.
Once you’ve got a couple projects under your belt, move on to this playlist and learn to make your first animation in advanced. You’ll learn key concepts such as loops, conditionals, varaibles, and more!
También estamos grabando todos nuestros videos en español para garantizar que la codificación y nuestro plan de estudios sean accesibles para todos. Si desea que hagamos clases en vivo en español, contáctenos y háganos saber.
We’re always looking for new ways to improve our site and learn more about how we can best serve educators and students around the world. Just send us a message and we’ll get back to you on as soon as we can.
