2020 Fall – Little Inventor Level 1

Halocode

Inventions start here!

This class is designed for students that have little or no previous experience in coding. Students will learn basic coding concepts though mBlock programming software and use it to create various fun projects on a wireless single board – HaloCode.

With a combination of HaloCode and mBlock 5, children can easily create Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligent (AI) projects like: voice controlled lighting show, visualized Earthquake data chart, Box Punching Machine, and even turning the Halocode into a wearable watch.

At the end of the camp, students will be introduced to MakeX Competition (the third largest STEM competition in the world) and how to enter the MakeX Spark competition in December, 2020.

mBlock

mBlock 5 is developed based on Scratch 3.0. It supports block-based programming, which makes coding intuitive and easy to pick up. All that students need to do is dragging and dropping those color-coded blocks. They can quickly gain an understanding of the basics of coding and focus on the more important thing, Creating.

Halocode

HaloCode is a wireless single board computer. With its built- in Wi-Fi support and microphone, the students can easily bring your board into the IoT projects and add speech recognition ability to it. It comes with plenty of sensors, such as 12 x Programmable RGB LED light, a Motion Sensor, a Touch Sensor and more. Using HaloCode, everyone can make their own creations, in an easy and fun way!

 

Hardware: Students need to purchase their own HaloCode from Amazon. Please allow enough time for shipping before the class started.
