Course Description:

In “Ladybugs Take Flight 1”, students are introduced to basic coding principles
that include (but are not limited to): use of start commands, variables, changes
in the coordinate plane, loops and forever loops

 

Initially through storytelling, students will use the Scratch programming language
to bring two ladybug characters to life. 

 

Historical references are utilized to provide context in the development of the first computers, a dance called the “Jitterbug”, and the roles of women in early computer science fields.

About the Instructor

Sydney B.

Sydney graduated from Charlotte Latin School’s class of 2021 and attends the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina. She has many passions, including learning new skills and passing on what she has learned to others. Her passions have given her experience in working with middle school aged girls to not only teach coding but to inspire innovation and growth. Through her work with this age group, Sydney was able to navigate teaching in a traditional, hybrid, and fully remote learning environment while simultaneously keeping on track with lesson plans to help the students achieve their goals. While she teaches the fundamentals of many coding languages, she also troubleshoots projects, gives advice to make code more concise, and works to promote creativity to solve everyday problems. Sydney looks forward to continuing teaching, learning, and growing with you all.
