COMPUTING FOR BEGINNERS

Wednesdays: March 13 – May 1

Teacher: Shea Gerard

This beginning computing course is offered for students in grade 1 or 2 in conjunction with a parent/guardian. The student/parent pair will build a Piper computer and learn the basics of how a computer works and how it can be programmed for both fun and work.  Participants will build basic electrical circuits and write simple programs to help them solve a Minecraft mystery!

This class is limited to 5 student/parent pairs.

Level: Grade 1 or 2 (along with a parent or guardian)

Cost: $80 for 8 sessions – scholarships are available (snacks included)

Thursdays 4:00 – 5:30: March 14 –  May 2

Teacher:     Scott Seibert

In this beginning robotics class student teams will design, build and program their own creative robot.  It would be best if the student has some programming experience but not necessary if they have good math or science skills.

Level: Grade 3 and above, preferably with some computer experience or good math/science skills

Cost: $80 for 8 sessions – scholarships are available (snacks included)

MAKER SPACE – CREATE YOUR OWN DEVICE

Thursdays 4:00 – 5:30: March 14 –  May 2

Teacher:     Isaac Robinson

Students will use Arduino components and software to design and build their own creations. The possibilities are endless with the variety of sensors, output devices and a circuit board in the middle. The class will include basic instruction on building and programming using Arduino but after that it is up to the student and their imagination!

Level: Grade 5 and above, preferably with some computer experience or good math/science skills

Cost: $80 for 8 sessions – scholarships are available (snacks included)
