Altino - Intro 2 Principles of Coding, Honolulu Complex


PDE3 - two days of coding, one day of curriculum dev, and two follow-on online sessions. This course can also be taken for audit.

Coding, a.k.a. computer programming, teaches students how to think critically. Like robotics, coding is a means, not an end to engage students. The goal is not to convert students into Computer Science majors! Coding is a way for students to experience and value the experimentation mindset, i.e., the innovation mindset, which is about creative problem solving, and how to break down problems. Coding feels very similar to Design Thinking and Robotics because failure is expected, which means failure really becomes about learning. Coding with the Altino robotic car feels like playing, but students are learning to think. And they won't want to stop!
