We are happy to announce two new programming courses for schools appropriate for Grades 3-8: Programming 101, and Programming 102.
Students learn at their own pace, which frees you up to provide more 1-on-1 attention. Programing concepts are introduced progressively in each lesson in Tynker’s interactive framework with narration, videos, guided tutorials, and projects.
Teachers now have the flexibility to choose and buy just the lesson plans they need, and add more as they go along the school year.
With 15 lessons and 80+ activities, this lesson plan introduces students to visual programming. Students create their own programs to write stories, animate characters and create interactive programs. The topics covered in this course are:
- Introduction to Visual Programming
- Basic Scene creation with Actors, Backgrounds and Sounds
- Drawing your own Actors and Scenes
- Loops and Repetition
- Simple Motion and Animation
- Making Greeting Cards
- Designing an animated Avatar
With 14 lessons and 80+ activities, this lesson plan is a continuation from Programming 101. Students learn new concepts and techniques such as generating musical notes, math art, and designing games. The topics covered in this course are:
- Generate computer music
