I liked having exposure to a lot of programs that I had never used before. For instance, I had never used FreeCAD and now I'm using it for projects and in school.
This experience was definitely something I will not forget. It was an opportunity to expand on my prior knowledge of coding. This course was very valuable and informative and I liked how involved all the teachers were and how willing they were when helping us learn! o
I participated in this course because I aspire to be a software developer. This experience is definitely worth it because I would like to create more games with the knowledge I learned throughout this course.
I learned how to make things with a 3D creator, which I think is really cool because I never knew how to do that before.
This program provided me with lots of knowledge in the 3D modeling field and the coding field. The sessions were efficiently assembled and presented. Plus, they were extraordinary interesting and straightforward. I would very much love to take another astounding program by mathstronauts!
My experience with GameDev was amazing! I had a blast. From the instructors, to TAs, to students, everyone was really nice. And learning how to code was really fun!!! I love how the TAs and instructors were there for us when we needed help, and they were very helpful.
I liked how interactive and hands-on the program was. The classes were not only focused on learning the content but also getting in practice and personal experience. I would recommend anyone who’s interested in a gateway into Python coding and machine learning to take this course.
I learned about various topics of science including biology, physics, and chemistry. I also learned many soft skills that will help me in high school and post-secondary education. I would recommend this program to anyone because it is a good learning experience!
I learned how to create 3D designs in TinkerCad, backgrounds in Canva and coding a mars animation in scratch (my favourite part!). Everything was awesome and I had a great experience! I used different “stack blocks” to create my mars animation and used different backgrounds and sprites.
Everything about the program appealed to me. This curriculum drew me in since I wanted to learn python and the basics, which would benefit me in the future because coding is such an important aspect of today’s world. I felt very excited to be a part of this program as it was interesting and challenging.
I learned a lot in this program, I’ve made a cool Shopping App, a fun quiz game, and even a 3D model of a satellite I got to design! I loved that it was a relaxed environment that made sure we could keep up and understand what we were doing with no pressure and just have fun learning.
This course helped me learn an area of STEM that I haven’t learned before. It wasn’t just the aspect of learning that I enjoyed, but the team put their effort to make it fun for students like me, and if you have fun while learning, then I would consider that mission accomplished.
Because of NEXUS, I have developed a real interest in coding.
