Class Experience

Students will learn basic block-based coding skills to navigate a virtual robot through different courses or "playgrounds". Skills learned include basic movement, loops and conditionals, using robotic sensor inputs.

I will give additional challenges for those who want to do more during the week, but there is no homework required for this course.
An internet-connected device running Windows or Mac OS, Chromebook, iPad or Android tablet. It is VERY helpful if students are accessing the site on a computer logged into the class session via Zoom so that they can screen share their work. Students are welcome to log in with more than one device so they can follow along with the demonstration on one device and do the programming on another (just mute the sound and microphone on one of the devices so that there are not feedback issues).
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Assessment will be verbal, informal assessment.  I can give formal written assessment to parents if requested.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will use the https://vr.vex.com website to complete the projects in this class.  No account creation is required.
We will be using this website: https://vr.vex.com and other educational materials from https://www.vexrobotics.com.
