Code Camp: Javascript – Session 1

Code Camp 2

Our first Code Camp meeting was a rousing success.  Thank you to all who participated.  We had a lot of fun meeting you, sharing coding solutions, and learning together!  Here’s a recap, in case you missed it.

To introduce ourselves to some of the foundational principles of coding, we played Cargo-Bot, a free iOS game.  In the game, your job is to program the movements of a robot arm so that it moves crates to a desired goal location.  We challenged ourselves to earn three stars (★ ★ ★) on as many of the levels as we could.  Through individual determination, collaboration, and encouragement, we managed to plow through a number of the tutorial and beginner levels.  Our playful introduction taught us about code elements, programs, and loops.  Next week we’ll dive into JavaScript!

If you missed our first meeting but want to join the fun, sign up for next week’s Code Camp.  We hope to see you there!

Also, if you are looking for some other apps for learning about coding, there are some great ones, even some that introduce coding to children:

  • Hopscotch – An introduction to coding geared toward kids
  • Hakitzu – A multi-player robot combat game that helps you learn the basics of JavaScript
  • Daisy the Dinosaur – A great way to introduce kids to coding as they program Daisy in free play mode or to complete challenges
  • Kodable – An introduction to coding geared toward very young kids
