About this Course
In STEAM Engine Transition learners continue their journey from Beginner and take things to a new level: transitioning into script coding.
A fundamental leap for any young person is conceptually understanding how blocks of code translate to actual script coding. In this course, students will learn more advanced block coding techniques and then see how blocks of code translate into script. Students will take a journey across our Solar System and develop animations and games using block coding methods as well as script coding languages. This course will help learners become more comfortable with script coding to become ready for STEAM Engine FLIGHT.
