This introductory class gives kids exposure to programming in Java with the goal of creating a simple & fun visual product (picture/simple animation).
Plus, additional technology intros and time for Q & A!
Each week we will discuss & reflect on elements of literature in the classic Watership Down, creating time for sharing & for deeper understanding of the text. Students may read the book and/or listen to the audio book to prepare for book club.
In this club, kids will play Minecraft while also connected in virtual audio rooms via the platform Discord. This format will allow for groups to create, play, ask questions, and collaborate while in the Minecraft realm. Continue the adventure with your friends whenever you like on our club's dedicated server.
