Creative Coding Level 1 - Coding and Animation
Watch your child learn all about code and storytelling this Easter!
Classes are held Monday – Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
This course is a perfect choice for children who have done Mini Coders or Level 1 Scratch and Robotics course, or are just beginning their coding journey.
Animation and Coding will introduce children to computers, programming and digital storytelling. Children will get to express their creativity by designing amazing stories on paper and bringing them to life with exciting visual programming and digital storytelling tools. In one week, children will learn how to create their own characters, build animated storylines and develop critical thinking skills by advancing their animation techniques. Students will get to program their characters by controlling their speed, actions, and adding more of them into their coding projects.
This course is filled with fun exercises, encouraging children to express their creativity by developing their storylines and making their own animations. Children will learn how to create animations, art designs and characters in Scratch where they will develop their coding skills. Children will also get to design hand-drawn flipbooks and make characters and models from clay for their animations. We will then turn all of these creations into short animations, learning how to use Scratch to tell a story, add sound to our short films, and even learn how to add special effect using the green screen.
This is a highly creative course that will help children combine arts and coding. With a combination of hands-on activities, programming tools and unique ideas from the children, this course will guarantee an educational fun for all little coders and artists!
Achievements and outcomes
Our teachers will actively record your child’s work throughout the camp and share it with you through Class Dojo - an app which allows you to see photos of your child’s work, be involved in your child’s progress and message the teachers directly if you have any questions. The children will also receive a certificate of completion on the final day. Upon finishing the course, children will get to bring their animations home.
We will also send you a report card updating you on your child's progress after camp.
