Designing Your Signature Color: Exploring the Magic of Hex Codes
Trial Lesson: Coding and Game Development
A one-time lesson where students can try out coding, run their first lines of code, and decide if they'd like to do more.
This class is designed to introduce you and your student to coding and my teaching style, so that you can decide whether you'd like to continue with another one of my classes. This one-hour lesson will include: - A discussion about "What is code?" and "What can you do with it?" - An introduction to variables — a tool to store information for later — how to create them, and what kind of data they can hold. - How to run your first lines of code. - An open-ended project where students can use...
- Give students and parents more information about my teaching style and whether coding is something they'd like to learn - Introduce coding as something doable and fun - Engage students in a discussion about what coding is, and what they can do with it - Introduce the concept of variables - Get students started on a digital art project that they can customize and continue developing after the lesson is over
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
To make setup as easy as possible, we will use Codepen for writing and running code. You don't need to do any setup before the lesson, but you can set up a free account if you'd like.
