We use various tools to introduce computer science and coding to students.

Panucation tailors course content to the needs and interests of individual students, by providing . coaches for every class.

Our innovative approach ignites a passion for learning in students while building essential competence for the 21st century.

Panucation uses a . framework.

STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)  describes not only a core group of subjects, but also a hands-on approach to learning that values real world applications over abstract knowledge.

Add Art to the mix, and you’ve got STEAM.  

Art brings imagination and play  to all of the components of STEM.  It also underscores the creative thinking skills that apply to each of the disciplines. 

STEAM is STEM with heart!

Class : Mars Pioneer

Description

Students use block code to build an interplanetary story and game. Multi-themed projects include elements of storytelling, art, animation, music, and game design all in one. Projects emphasize creativity by encouraging students to build their unique stories each day.

Intermediate Level course is suitable for students familiar with block coding.

Class Levels:  Intro for Ages 7-12, Intermediate for Ages 9-12 Prerequisite for Intermediate: My First Intro to Coding! or previous course
Agenda

1. Design Your Journey

Tell your story. Who’s going, create/draw your ship, prepare Perseverance for launch.

2. Launch & Transit

 Animating departure from Earth and through space. Is there an imposter on board?!

3: Land & Explore

Create a game to land on target. Explore and decide what (or who) you’ll find.

4: Drone Time

Launch the drone, Ingenuity, and create your scrolling background effect as it flies.

5: Should I stay or should I go?

How does your story end, or does it continue to the next chapter?

Learning Outcomes
  • Learn to connect online, screen share, use chat to communicate with Coach and fellow students (on-line collaboration via Zoom)
  • Learn fundamentals of computer science using Scratch
  • Multi-day projects include integrated elements of storytelling, art, animation, music, and game design.

For 4th to 7th grade classes, there are additional learning outcomes:

  • Students add depth to their creations with additional project coding.
  • Intermediate level classes cover material faster to allow for more coding depth to projects
