Tynker's beginning levels are basic enough to welcome all students to coding concepts, and its higher levels are sophisticated and complex enough to challenge and attract the most advanced programmers among my students. Dr Jeanie Smith Teacher from Jordon Middle School, CA
Once your students have completed at least five lessons of Programming 101 or equivalent coding experience, you can assign these NGSS-aligned projects to complement your teaching on topics in geology, meteorology, oceanography, and astronomy. For example, if you’re teaching a lesson on the structure of the Earth, you can assign the Earth’s Composition project. Your students will use coding and outside research to create an interactive diagram about the layers of the Earth.
With this collection of earth science projects, you can easily integrate coding and project-based learning into your curriculum. Each STEM lesson walks students through how to make a project about something they’re learning in school with step-by-step instructions. At each step, it encourages them to make their project unique and interesting, emphasizing that coding is a creative medium much like writing or drawing.
