Coding is a direct pathway to achieving competency in programming ability. This year we will be introducing a BBT-designed, online programming course. Supported by ASP mentors, the Digital teams will focus on AI programming. They will be introduced to the programming basics to acquire foundational knowledge as a prerequisite to designing and building automated model cars. Using programs like Scratch, Code Academy, Twine, and Accelium, students can hone their know-how in experimentation, language, and computational thinking; there will also be robotics available to combine building and programming.
