Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays

Modelled after our Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (DEEP) Summer Academy for high school students, Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays and Girls’ Coding Jr. DEEP Saturdays offers courses that will provide students with the opportunity to master the basics of coding. They will be introduced to various coding languages and explore how to create their own programs, with an emphasis on coding logic, programming functionality, and theory.

Our Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays and Girls’ Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays programs run for three weeks in length with the topic changing each week. Below are descriptions for the programs . Classes are divided by grade – there will be a class for students in grades 5/6 and grades 7/8 according to the 2019/2020 school year.

Please note that our Girls’ Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays and Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays content will be identical. As such, please do not sign up for both sessions. Any students who attended Jr. DEEP Coding in the summer should not attend Coding Saturdays as the content is similar.

We will send you more information about the location and schedule via a pre-program package sent to all participants at least 1 week prior to the start of the program.

Girls’ Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays & Jr. DEEP Coding Saturdays 2019 Topics

Let’s Get Hands-On: Build A Computer Challenge

Have you ever used a computer and wondered how it worked? Or maybe even how it was built? Now is your chance to answer these questions! In this course, students will build a computer and learn about the different components that make it… well… beep. After, students will get to program an app of their choice on the computers they built themselves.

Engineering Connections: Electrical and Computer Engineering

Rolling Robots: Coding Spheros

In this course, the creators of tomorrow will use a robotic ball to bring coding to life. This robot will help students learn about programming concepts including block and text programming. Students will be able to apply the engineering design process to solve specific navigation problems and complete games and activities.

Engineering Connections:Electrical and Computer Engineering

Video Game Development 101: The Basics

What makes video games so entertaining?! In this course, students will learn about the elements needed to design a successful video game. Using the provided software, they will use what they’ve learned to prototype specific aspects of their own video game design and bring their ideas to life! Whoever said learning isn’t fun?
