DESCRIPTION

Coding and Game Design

Tynker – Learn to code using Tynker’s own visual programming language, featuring visual drag-n-drop logic blocks that eliminate the need to understand programming syntax. Young learners learn to program their own games and apps using extensive media gallery and physics engine. For students going into 1st to 3rd grades.

Clickteam Fusion – Bring your students into the world of designing games and apps. This course guides them through the fundamental concepts of coding and game design to create and publish their own apps. Do you want them to make the next Angry Birds? No problem, they are just a few clicks away. For students going into 4th to 7th grades.

Lego Robotics 

Students design, build, and program exciting robots using LEGO’s advanced technology. Students also work in teams as they collaborate and brainstorm ideas to build robots using motors, tilt sensors, light sensors, gyro sensors, ultrasonic sensors, and touch sensors.

Minecraft Adventure Map

Unlock your child’s imagination in the world of Minecraft designed by them. Students design adventure maps, build Minecraft world using MC Edit, create 3D structures and use command blocks to customize the game element.

Electronics with Minecraft Redstone

 Apply the principles of electrical Engineering by designing circuits to act in response to player activation and autonomously. Students create devices with simple to complex mechanisms such as light switches, traps, elevators, automatic farms to take Minecraft to a next level.

Minecraft Modding

Students learn programming focusing on building a mod with custom Minecraft recipes, functionality, tools and blocks using a block based programming interface. For students going into 1st  to 3rd grades.

 Java Forge – Students learn Java programming focusing on building a mod with custom recipes, functionality, tools and blocks. For students going into 4th to 7th grades.

Kerbal Space Program

Students build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew out into space. This Physics-based Flight Simulation enables each student to custom build a spacecraft and navigate it to distant moons, asteroids, and planets.

Hands On Engineering

Do you have a student who loves to build their own inventions and is curious about how and why things work? Through hands-on activities, students will jump right into the engineering cycle of designing, crafting, testing, and improving their very own creations.  Students design and build their own electrical gadgets, simple machines and mechanisms, bridges, rockets, boats and more, learning various engineering disciplines. In addition, students will also strengthen and develop other skills such as mathematics, logic, various scientific principles, and problem solving.  They also get to take their creations home.
