Kiddiengineer LiveStream

Livestream is now available.  Kiddiengineers can enjoy our famous extra mural classes with the same live, expert instructor, while interacting in a safe, online classroom in a live setting led by our experienced teacher in a controlled environment from home. Kiddiengineers still get to enjoy all the important social interaction with other students, but from your computer at home with the simple click of a link. Livestream follows the same schedule as our regular modules do at school or on the LMS, and can be signed up for by following the booking forms below. You still receive the hardware (when needed) we use for each module and work with us to learn the coding, robotics or engineering module that you like best.

Our current Live Streaming Modules

Module 1a: Introduction to coding

Learn how to use your micro:bit (which normally comes with this course) and learn how to code using the makecode block editor. This course can be done with or without getting your own micro:bit, currently in lock down we cannot deliver micro:bits to our clients (as soon as we can deliver we will inform you). We investigate using the makecode platform to build some fantastic interactive programs and build on our previous knowledge from Module 1.


Module 1b: Extending the micro:bit and Makecode

In this module, take your micro:bit and makecode to the next level by learning how to use more complex features on the micro:bit, whilst doing more intricate coding in makecode. It focuses on a lot of the sensory data and pins, like temperature, direction, acceleration and light levels, along with a few builds away from the mirco:bit using the pins.

Module 4: Introduction to Arcade

The MakeCode Arcade editor has been designed to allow everyone, from beginners to experienced game enthusiasts, to create retro arcade games to run in the browser or on handheld consoles. It consists of drag and drop blocks that snap together to form programs. You can also write code for ARCADE in JavaScript and there is also a Python editor coming soon!
