Introduction to Computer Science with Python 3-YQG-2021-07

This course is designed to help students begin their computer science journey through the use of a real-world programming language – Python 3. Python is in the top 3 most loved languages by software developers and is the number one language developers want to learn, according to Stack Overflow. Students will build upon their problem-solving skills and understand computational thinking through the context of programming. They will discover how vital syntax is in a text-based languages, as well as how programs flow.

Introduction to Computational Thinking

Ages and Qualifications: 13 to 17 with no prior experience

This course is designed to help students recognize the thought processes when they are formulating and solving problems to be carried out by a computer or device. These processes will help students become better at analyzing problems when they are coding. 

Computational thinking is the thought processes involved in formulating problems and their solutions so that the solutions are represented in a form that can be effectively carried out by an information-processing agent. Four of these thoughts processes will be addressed during this workshop: decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithms.  This workshop will focus on tackling problems using these thoughts processes and carrying-out solutions using a block-based coding language: Scratch 3. Participants will think analytically, design, and code in real time and will have an opportunity to share their knowledge with others. No prior programming experience is required to attend this online class.  

At the end of the workshop, students will be able to: 

  • Understand why computational thinking is pertinent when programming but also in their daily lives. 
  • Decompose problems in smaller sub-problems. 
  • Recognize patterns in problems facilitating decomposition, save time and make their code more efficient. 
  • Use abstraction to remove unnecessary details while solving a problem. 
  • Use algorithms to create a series of steps to produce pseudocode and code.  
  • Identify and use various coding mechanisms to make their code more efficient, including loops, variables, functions and lists.

Learn to Code with Micro:bit 2.0-YQG-2020.10

Ages: 8-12 years old

Description:

This workshop is a continuation of the “Learn to code with Micro:bit” course. In the first workshop, participants used the Micro:bit to create their own animated emoji, produce an electronic name tag, and compose a melody. In this new workshop, participants will upgrade their coding skills by using more complex programming structures, including the use of loops, conditions, variables, operators, and random values. They will use these structures to create their own games of chance and games of skill.

Learn to Code Online With Microbit-YQG-2020.07

We’re recently completed our first online course “Learn to Code with Micro:bit” with a test market and we’re happy to share with you after our initial success!

A micro:bit is a pocket sized little computer that runs the code the boys create using the Microsoft Makecode platform.

No prior programming experience is required to participate in this online class. This exciting one-hour new course will cater to boys age 8 to 12. It will be held one Saturday per week for a two-week period. It will encourage critical thinking and will develop coding abilities and creativity with a strong self-awareness component.

The boys will be required to think analytically, design, play, and code in real-time and will have an opportunity to share their knowledge with others.

In addition to our two-hour online workshops, the boys will be given projects to practice and use the skills they have learned the previous week. In the second and final week of the program, the learners will be given the opportunity to present their work.
