Meadow Hill Scholars Present Computer Science Creations


Last week Meadow Hill scholars enrolled in the Computer Science for Innovators and Makers computer coding class for the Empire After School Progam, facilitated by Mrs. Winfield-Corbett, wrapped up a semester of learning. In addition to learning computer coding skills, activities in this course centered on the creation of physical computing projects that bring programming out of the virtual environment and into the physical world.  

 

Throughout the unit of study, students designed and developed programmed devices along with the code that brings these devices to life.  The projects created promote student awareness of interactive systems and broaden their understanding of abstract computer science concepts.  These projects include interactive art, wearable technology and mechanical devices.  

 

The projects involve objects, systems or installations that interact with their environment through sensors and actuators.  The final culminating projects shown are robotic masks designed by each student.  Students then created code that was programed onto Microbit computer chips to display a message.  Congratulations to the students for a job well done!
