GET STARTED WITH CODE 2

BEGINNER:

6 FEBRUARY 2019 

Session 1: Solving problems with Algorithms 

Computers need clear, understandable instructions that need to be precise ?to get a specific result. Put your investigator hat on and come and apply you knowledge of commands and sequences to solve Algorithms. 


13 FEBRUARY 2019 

Session 2: Debugging

Learn what pseudocode is as you debug a set of Algorithms. Code has to be very accurate. ?

If there’s a bug, the algorithm won’t work. 


20 FEBRUARY 2019 

Session 3: Looking for loops

In coding, we use for loops to give instructions to repeat a set of commands, Come and learn how to make your code more efficient.


INTERMEDIATE:

27 FEBRUARY 2019

 Session 4: Composition & Decomposition 

In coding, we put together smaller pieces of code to create a more complex program through composition. We use decomposition to break down a problem into smaller pieces that we can deal with one by one. Come and learn how to take your coding knowledge to the next level.
