JAVA SCRIPT CODING AND ELECTRONICS 101 

Partnering with the now nationally-renowned local startup PodPi, we have created a curriculum that teaches students about Java-Script coding and applies that knowledge to student-designed, real-world projects. Using Java-Script with an Arduino board, students are able to build their first simple circuits and code them to accomplish a variety of tasks. Replacing ordinary lesson plans with an exciting series of adventures on the Island of PodPi, students are engaged in solving real problems, performing critical thinking tasks, and participating in hands-on lessons with reduced screen time. IntelliBricks will provide all supplies. No coding experience is necessary. (Please note: IntelliBricks will provide all supplies and touch screen computers for the camp. Children cannot take home any of their creations. Materials are available for purchase if interested.)
