The Internet of things (IoT) is a network of items which enables connectivity and exchange of data between them. Through interaction with micro:bit, students will be introduced to the concept of IoT by building a series of electronic projects. In this course, students will be using learning the basics of Python through MicroPython (a subset of Python for hardware programming) and applying the programming concept to control both built-in and plugged-in components. The possibilities of what students can create with this tiny computer are endless.
We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.
Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.
First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.
What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
