STEM: Introduction to Coding I
In the first year of STEM-10, students take lessons starting from square zero and then advance step-by-step through the fundamentals of coding.
In the first year of STEM-10, students take lessons starting from square zero and then advance step-by-step through the fundamentals of coding. In the first half of the year, the course builds a baseline understanding of the concepts needed to learn coding.
In the second half of the year, the students are introduced to Cellus Bot, a teaching robot which is equipped with lights, motor, and sensors, all of which are controlled by block coding modules included as part of the course. As an additional touch, the Bot sports a laser which draws shapes and circles as the robot dances. The built-in accelerometer supports program-controlled responses to movements and positioning of the Bot. Students first learn how to control the robot in the most simplistic manner, but the lessons develop in complexity as the course progresses.
Here is the class outline:
1. Acellus Orientation
Learners will get a feel of the Acellus interface and its basic functionalities to access your classes and monitor your daily progress in real time. A sample video lesson is also provided how videos lesson are delivered.

4. WeLearn Future Skills
Acquiring facts and knowledge is no longer sufficient in today’s learning environment, or the working world, our learners will enter in the future. Anyone with modern technology can acquire that information. What our learners need is the ability to apply that knowledge to thrive in the digital age. People refer to these skills as “future skills” or “21st-century skills.”
