PiperCode utilizes Google Blockly to teach code.  Students will first learn the basics of Google Blockly.  Blockly allow children to switch from block-based code to text-based code in Python.  Children will be able to view real functioning Python code.  PiperCode allows children to interface with the Raspberry Pi, giving students a chance to create code that turns on lights, buzzers, etc.

The itinerary for the class is found below:

  • Day 1 - What is Google Blockly? Intro to Python
  • Day 2 - Loops, Sequences, and Events
  • Day 3 - Lights and Sounds (learning to program LEDs and buzzers)
  • Day 4 - Building a Board Game (Game Design)
  • Day 5 - Adding a player
  • Day 6 - Collecting and Using a Player
