Vidcode - Climate Science and Code - Students research a fact about the Earth's climate, engaging with the work of scientists and artists in response to climate change. Students take their research and plan a video sharing their fact. Videos can be about Understanding climate changes and its effects Public responses to the climate change effects How climate change impacts everyday life What actions can you take to make a difference
MATLAB - Learn to Code is an engaging, online, interactive tutorial where you learn how to code. Use MATLAB to find out if the closest meet-up location with your friends is the movies, the mall, or the cafe. Break the problem up into smaller chunks and learn basic programming concepts along the way. By the end of the hour, create an algorithm to find the shortest path to your friends!
ITCH - Stop Frame Animation - We'll be using Itch to build our own stop frame animation projects. Note that headphones are recommended for this course. We will use some existing sprites that support animations and show the code we need to add to animate our characters. We'll also go over how to create our very own animation effects and drawings. We'll learn how to change a sprite costume in scratch repeatedly for animation effects (similar to a flip-book animation) and the code behind it. All instruction is contained within the Itch environment so there is no need to be switching screens to follow along with the project.
Python Turtle Graphics - Python is an engaging and simple language to learn. Learn about using modules, functions, loops, and lists, all while creating fun images with the help of your turtle buddies. Geometry has never been so much fun!
Animate Your Name with Scratch - With Scratch, you can create your own interactive games, stories, animations -- and share them with your friends. To get started, animate the letters of your name, initials, or a favorite word. Activity cards and a workshop guide are also available for free on scratch.mit.edu.
