UNIFY: Web Coding Years 5-6 STEM Series: Web Coder

BIG IDEA: Web Coder develops students’ coding skills with a focus on the technology of the internet. The course builds on the Year 5-6 Code Breaker program*. Students are immersed in problem-solving challenges and learn how to code with HTML 5, CSS and electronics kits. Web Coder involves an additional charge of $30 per student for a programmable electronics kit posted to your school. SELECTION CRITERIA:

 *It is recommended that Web Coder students have already completed our Code Breaker Year 5-6 course as a prerequisite, however this is not compulsory.  Selection criteria are subjective - teacher judgement and student interest in the topic should assist selection.  Some schools use this project as an opportunity to extend mid-to- high achieving students and to build staff capability. AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM:
