It’s time to pack your bags and dive into the world of STEM, coding, and robotics—no experience necessary! This intro course takes kids on a journey through 10 virtual CoderZ destinations where they’ll learn how to program and navigate a virtual robot using Blockly. Lessons include CS, basic math, geometry, project development, and soft skills. Gamified missions break up the lessons into bite-sized chunks to set a comfortable learning pace.
Includes teaching guide with: solutions, reflective questions, formative assessment suggestions, quizzes, instructional videos, knowledge base, and class management tool!
Who this course is for: Teachers and students grades 4-6, without prior coding or robotics knowledge, but with an open and curious mind.
Self-paced, gamified activities with real-time feedback and step-by-step instructions
Introduction to coding, robotics, and motion planning with ‘drive distance’ and ‘turn’ instructions.
Students dive deeper into programming by gathering data using basic math, then explain their code with comments.
Students learn to use the distance measuring tool and navigation tools such as ‘wait’ and ‘repeat’.
Students use the ‘turn block’ angle parameter to add or subtract and compute the required degrees to turn their robot.
Students use the digital measuring tool to discover the radius of a circle and the degrees of an angle.
Students code the robot to write their initials, trace an ice-cream cone, and create a custom mandala
Students use all the skills acquired throughout the course in a creative way. Coding for fun!
Students use the robot’s distance sensor to create programs that can adapt to unpredictable environments.
Students use 'push blocks' to remove obstacles in their environment and practice logical problem solving.
Students instruct their robots to use 'push blocks', and coordinate with the helicopter-bot.
Everything you need to flow through each lesson, including: clear objectives, questions for reflection, instructional videos, and more.
Each session is guided by a presentation that covers the entire session from theory to practice, including: scientific background, examples and sample code, discussion guidelines, play time activities, and speaker notes.
You can quickly navigate to all the solutions for each lesson in just a few clicks.
So you can see how individual students compare to one another, identify specific topics they may be struggling with, and recommend corrective actions.
Get answers to all your subject matter questions and find your way around the platform.
