Description

Class Experience

Students will learn how to code using Scratch.
Students will learn and apply the engineering design process. 
I am an engineer with over 10 years of teaching experience. I enjoy bringing complex engineering concepts to younger students in an un-intimidating way, to encourage exposure to STEAM fields. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Dear Parents & guardians, 

This class uses 1 External Platform, Scratch, which requires parental consent before use by children under the age of 13. Please ensure you review the privacy policy here: https://scratch.mit.edu/privacy_policy.

In order to ensure we make the best of the class, I would like to request that your child  (1) has a new Scratch project open and ready at the start of class and (2) is comfortable with spelling, using the mouse & keyboard and the Zoom Screen Share feature. Scratch can be accessed here: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/editor/?tutorial=getStarted. 

This course is designed such that each week focuses on a new project and does not depend on the previous week. However, students like to save their work and view it again. Saving Scratch projects will not be taught in the class - if you would like to save your child's work, please ensure this is done before or after each class. There are 2 ways to do this: 
1. Download the project each time. This one is difficult for students as they would have to find it in the downloads folder and use the same device each time. This is also limited to desktop.
2. Create a Scratch account. This one automatically saves new projects, and students don’t have to worry about saving their projects each time. It would be necessary, however, to login to the scratch account each week before class. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. 

Best regards,

Afifa
