Westbriar Elementary School PTA
STEMTREE - Coding With Fun
It’s time for a workout, for your kids’ mind that is.
Brought to you by Westbriar business partner and space camp competition sponsor, STEMTREE! Today most children use computers and manipulate media, but few of them know how to create the media or software they are using. This class will teach students how to create and develop computer programs (games, stories, etc.) instead of playing them. Students will learn the computer programming concepts in a fun and interactive way. They will combine media elements to create and share their own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art. Students will learn basic reasoning and problem solving skills. They will have an opportunity to think creatively, communicate clearly, use technology fluently, and collaborate effectively. They will also create their own computer programs to implement computer games and combine multiple topics (Science, Engineering, Teamwork).
Your child does not need previous computer programming experience.
