Introduction to Coding for Grades K-3!

Campers can code the VEX 123 robot using touch to control movements and sounds. They learn sequences, logic and problem solving. Campers progress to using coding Cards and the VEX Coder to control the 123 robot. They learn real programming away from tablets and computers. Campers will use VEXcode with Drag & Drop blocks to code the 123 robot.
Why all children must learn to code:
Across the world, the conversion of information into a digital format – also called “digitalization” – has increased productivity in the public and private sectors. As a result, virtually every country in the world is working towards a digital economy.
As this new economy evolves, special skills like computer programming are needed. This is like a language of numbers, known as code, which allows people to write instructions that are executed by computers. The goal is to create something: from a web page, to an image, to a piece of software!
Aside from giving them a head start for the future of work, compared to other forms of numeric sciences, learning code can enhance children’s creativity.
