Student Instructions

Complete all 14 levels of this coding activity and submit your certificate of completion (use 'add file' tool) "Traditional programming is usually in text but today we'll use Blockly, a system which uses visual blocks that you can drag and drop to write programs. Under the hood, you're creating Javascript code. The concepts you'll be learning are what computer programmers use every day and are the foundation to computer science. At Mojang, they use these same concepts to make Minecraft work. Blockly, which uses visual blocks that you drag and drop to write programs. It’s easier to learn programming using a visual language versus a text-based language because when you’re learning to program, you’re up against 2 things: learning the logic of how to write programs and also the syntax of writing programs. In both visual and text-based programming, you’re learning the logic of writing programs like how to repeat instructions or how to make the computer decide between 2 instructions."
