Playful Programming, Tinkering, and Enginerring at Foothill College

Monday, June 24, 2019

Developing skills to program, tinker, experiment and invent applying the Engineering Design Process and Design Thinking to solve problems. Youth will learn the fundamentals of programming the Adafruit Circuit Playground Express using Makecode.com. As they learn the various capabilities of the platform, they will be challenged to apply these to solving some real-world problems. Prototyping will be done using cardboard engineering using tools such as http://www.papermech.net/ in combination with the Circuit Playground Express as they develop their product. Learning to work through the Engineering Design Process and Design Thinking students will work to solve problems identified by their observations and interests with the course materials. Using the Stanford D. School Design Thinking process students will interview a user/client, identify the problem(s), generate solutions, build a solution, get feedback and iterate.
