Hi Jaguar Elites!!!
JCS has a partnership with Microsoft and they are bringing the following programs to you starting in December:
Minecraft Hour of Code
Learn how to code, program, and play in your own gaming world. You’ll use fun, interactive coding to learn how creativity and problem solving come together to make something all your own. Workshop designed for ages 8 and older
Code Your Own Video Game with MakeCode Arcade
In this virtual series, students use blockbased coding to create a video game with MakeCode Arcade. Students learn 4 fundamental game and coding concepts like sprites, variables, and coordinates, and use their new skills to create and customize a playable game. By the end, students will have:
• Learned and used key game design and coding concepts
• Coded a playable game
• Published their game via a URL so they can continue to play and develop it afterwards
Start Your Own Business Workshop
This workshop focuses on guiding students through the steps of thinking of their big idea, planning how to turn it into a product or service, deciding how to get the word out, and pitching their idea to others. Activities center on structured brainstorming sessions and each participant building a short PowerPoint presentation summarizing their business plan (a template is provided). At the end of the workshop, students will practice their elevator pitch and present to the group. Students will leave the workshop with resources and inspiration to continue on their journey as emerging entrepreneurs.
You will have the opportunity to participate in all three clubs by the end of the year. At this time, you are selecting which ONE you would like to participate in during the first cycle and the second cycle. There are 15 spots in each. The first 15 are automatically in the club, and others will be given a choice of one of the other two clubs.
Make your choice by Thursday, November 19th.
