Elementary Technology Camp
Explore Computer Programming in a Fun and Engaging Way!
Beginning Computer Programming
Course 1 will allow early readers to solve progressively difficult problems in a game like format. Students will "write instructions" to move characters through a maze, learn how to "debug" a program and even use loops with repeated actions. This course is intended for students entering first and second grades.
Course 2 is designed for students entering third through fifth grades with little or no computer programming experience. Students will write instructions, debug programs, use loops and conditional statements, and create a simple interactive story. Students will also learn the meaning of digital footprint which will help students to understand that publishing information about themselves online creates a digital footprint or "trail" that has consequences. If time we may begin Course 3.
