Recommended Age Group: Grade 4-12
Level 1 is an introduction to programming and building circuits. Learners with no knowledge of programming will navigate through the basics of code writing using simple inputs and outputs to allow them to understand how programming language work. We use real world scenarios and examples throughout this course to allow our learners to think critically and creatively.
In this course we utilise the Arduino Uno, the Arduino is an easy to use platform allowing for a friendly learning environment while being affordable. The Arduino is also open-source software and hardware which allows us to give our learners not only an awareness of coding but also the tools to create something different using the skills they learn. For example, if your child is interested in creating something new, they can do it without copyright restrictions.
Once a learner finishes this course he/she will be able to understand how to code the Arduino as well as how to build and connect circuits on a breadboard using multiple inputs and outputs.
