CoderZ Adventure is a fun way for elementary school students to understand robotics and coding
The CoderZ Adventure Course will empower teachers to teach their students the basics of coding and robotics, an exciting interdisciplinary STEM field. The course is powered by CoderZ’s Online Robotics Learning Environment which provides online simulation, a visual code editor, embedded content, class management and more. No prior knowledge needed!
To complete the course, teachers should allocate 10 hours. This may vary depending on students’ coding experience and the amount of time they may invest at home.
CoderZ Adventure introduces your students to the fascinating world of STEM and robotics through an exciting journey and adventures in CoderZ world. Students will learn how to program a virtual robot to navigate in CoderZ Frozen Island, the Lost City, Candy Town, and other exciting locations while practicing basic math, geometry, and more.
Course outline and learning objectives
Let’s start our journey!
In this adventure, we’ll take you step by step in CoderZ world and explore the exciting world of STEM.
The basic of arithmetic
Addition, subtraction, division., will make your journey in our Frozen Island much warmer.
The Lost City
You won’t get lost while using the explore mode feature, by measuring distance and practicing wait block and repeat loos you’ll find your way to the next adventure.
Let’s practice basic geometry
Angles and parallel lines and travel in the crystal carter world together with repeat loops practicing.
Candy Town- The journey getting sweeter
In this adventure, we’ll practice more geometry: the concept of a radius in a circle. Practicing Repeat Loops.
Time to creativity and practice! – let’s see your art skills while using all the topics learned up to this adventure: driving distance, angles, radii, etc.
Milky Way - Our last and exciting adventure
Here we’ll use the explore more feature using the Explore Mode feature to measure angles and radii. Planning the optimal route to complete a mission as quickly and efficiently as possible, given a time limit.
Heatmaps and student reports
Course Progress Control
Students are loving the game! What’s keeping them motivated is trying to find the solution first…I incentivize them to resolve the challenge as efficiently as possible (and whoever finishes first. Kids LOVE a race…)
I was only really expecting the students to complete two sets of challenges in any one course each week, but once students get going, your system is highly addictive.
Once I saw coderZ, I was hooked. I have been using it as online assignments for my students so that they have a fun way to learn to code. Due to this, I have gotten significant favorable feedback from the kids saying they like the assignments and a lot of students have worked well ahead of schedule thus far.
