    New Coding Program for 5th and 6th graders

    Explore the world of coding and have fun doing it using LittleBits electronics.  Students work in pairs begin coding in minutes while learning about input/output, loops and variables.   Then they apply what they know to perform coding challenges.

    3-5 ETS1 Science & Engineering
    3-5-ETS1-1. Define a simple design problem reflecting a need or a want that includes specified criteria for success.
    3-5-ETS1-2.Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
    3-5-ETS1-3. Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects that can be improved.

    ETS1.B Designing Solutions to Engineering Problems
    Testing a solution involves investigating how well it performs under a range of likely conditions (secondary to 4-ESS3-2)
    ETS1.C Optimizing the Design Solution
    Different Solutions to be tested in order to determine which of them best solves the problem given the criteria and constraints (3-5-ETS1-3_
