Background Information

BEGINNER - Level 1
Program Description
Design and code techie gadgets, learn the basics of electric circuits and use a variety of sensors with micro:bit and Microsoft. The micro:bit is a progression from the BBC Micro, a microchip that helped introduce society to computing back in the 1980s! Today, the micro:bit is used to build tech gadgets such as step counters, stopwatches, and radio transmitters. In the first course of this track , you will use the Microsoft MakeCode platform to control the micro:bit. You will start with using block-based coding and move to text-based programming with JavaScript. Also, you will learn how electronic components and sensors work and how they are used in real life. In the first course of this track, you will use the Microsoft MakeCode platform to control the micro:bit. You will start with using block-based coding and move to text-based programming with JavaScript. Also, you will learn how electronic components and sensors work and how they are used in real life.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand how electronic components such as LEDs, buzzers, and motors work
  • Learn how sensors such as light sensors and accelerometers work
  • Use fundamental coding concepts such as event triggers, variables, and loops to control electronic components
  • Translate block based code to JavaScript code

INTERMEDIATE - Level 2
Program Description
Robots make computer science come to life with real-world applications, and today you do not need a physical robot to learn all about them! Instead, you can learn using a virtual robot on VEX code VR, a platform developed by the organizers of the world’s largest robotics competition, VEX Robotics. In the second course of this track, you will code a VEX robot using a block-based coding language and see it execute that code in a virtual 3D environment. You will make the robot pick up colored disks using magnets, navigate the walls of a complex maze, knock out a large tower, and find objects using color sensors. You will also learn about how robots work and interact with the world through a series of mechanical systems and sensors.

Learning Outcomes
  • Learn how to code a robot to navigate around complex paths using the concepts of heading and rotation
  • Understand how sensors such as distance sensors, color sensors, and bumper sensors work
  • Learn and apply coding concepts such as while loops, if statements, and functions to code complex behaviors
  • Explore the real life applications of robots in various industries

ADVANCED - Level 3
Program Description
You don’t need a fancy workshop with expensive equipment to create a working prototype. As a matter of fact, in the final course of this track, you will build electronic gadgets using a virtual Arduino board and the platform Tinkercad. You will connect various electrical components such as LEDs, motors, and sensors on a breadboard and control them using a block-based coding language. This course is a great introduction to the connection between hardware and software and how to use microprocessors. By the end, you will be able to create a wide variety of gadgets, including an LED dice, a throwing arm, and a weather station.

Learning Outcomes
  • Understand how microprocessors are used to power most of our electronic devices
  • Connect components such as LEDs, motors, and ultrasonic sensors on a breadboard
  • Control components by uploading block based code onto a virtual Arduino microprocessor
  • Read the inputs of sensors and use them to control the outputs of the Arduino board
