Create Your Coding Project Portfolio with Image, GIF, and Video!

Create Your Coding Project Portfolio with Image, GIF, and Video!

  • Grades 2-10
  • Does your child enjoy coding and creating? Start having him/her build a project portfolio so they have their work over the years nicely collected. How wonderful it would be to see these creations years later. Many great schools love to see how students have built their skills as well. You can see highlights of some of our students projects on our site at https://www.create-learn.us/kids-coding-projects. Join this free event so your child can learn how start a portfolio and upload projects in Scratch, Python, Minecraft, or any other programs. Your child can also see other students' work and get inspired! In this event, kids will also learn how to create images, GIFs, and videos using Canva - a powerful free digital design tool - for your project covers.

Q&A with NASA's Ben Feist, Winner of NASA Software Excellence Award

Q&A with NASA's Ben Feist, Winner of NASA Software Excellence Award

  • Grades K-12
  • We are proud to host this live, virtual Q&A event with NASA's Ben Feist!

    Ben Feist is a Data Visualization Software Engineer at NASA's Johnson Space Center (JSC) where he is designing and building the systems that will enable humanity’s return to the Moon. His work at NASA has been recognized with the JSC Software Excellence Award in both 2021 and 2022 with the latter project also being nominated for NASA Software of the Year.
     
    Prior to NASA, Ben had a long career in the web development consulting industry where he designed and built interactive experiences, eventually running the technology disciplines at several creative marketing agencies.
     
    Ben’s path to NASA is somewhat unique. While his day job was in the private sector, he spent his evenings and weekends for nine years on a personal passion project that brought several of NASA’s Apollo missions to life online (http://apolloinrealtime.org). When NASA saw the work, they hired him. Ben’s Apollo work also earned him the 2019 Leif Erikson Exploration History Award, the 2020 Society of Historians in the Federal Government Excellence in New Media Award, a Gold Pencil at the 2020 One Show for Creativity, a D&AD 2021 Creative Excellence Award, and selection for publication in the 2021 Communication Arts Design Annual.
     
    In 2019, Ben was part of the team behind the critically acclaimed Apollo 11 IMAX film that took home three Emmy awards. He was also a member of the historic Apollo Mission Control restoration team that earned him the Texas Governor’s Award for Historic Preservation.

Circuit Fun with Snap Circuits - New Content Each Month

Circuit Fun with Snap Circuits - New Content Each Month

  • Grades 2-8
  • They are in your phone, and they are in your car. They light up your house, and they run roller coasters. What are they? They're electronic circuits and they're everywhere! In this fun free online event, your child will learn the basics of electronic circuits using Snap Circuits. We will build several fun projects, while they learn what a circuit is, how circuits work, how to create one, and how to add more parts in a circuit to make sounds, light, and more! They will also learn different components of circuits, and how they can be put together to create a fun system. We are running this roughly on a monthly basis. Each month has a difference theme.

    • September - Intro to Snap Circuits

    • October - Conductors

    • November - Resistors

    • December - Integrated Circuits 1

    • January - Sensors

    • February - Integrated Circuits 2

  • 60 minutes
  • 2-1000 students group class
  • Your child will have a much better experience if you have a SNAP CIRCUITS® JR set or above. You can get a set at Amazon for ~$20 when it is on sale for the most basic model. However, having a set is not required. Your children are welcome to join, observe, and learn, as we also cover general engineering topics.
Create Halloween Animations with Coding (Beginner Friendly!)

Create Halloween Animations with Coding (Beginner Friendly!)

  • Grades 2-6
  • Does your child want to create something cool this Halloween? How about creating an animated Halloween pumpkin, a virtual pet, or any characters they like with coding! Check out this spooky-good FREE coding event for beginners. In this virtual event, we will explore MIT's Scratch coding which is a great way to introduce kids to computer programming because it uses simple drag-and-drop blocks rather than complex syntax. Kids will see how to choose, upload, or draw a sprite, plus create special effects, and animate their sprite in different ways. At the end of the event, students are able to upload and share their own animations to their portfolio. For kids new to coding, this is a perfect event to explore how they can use coding to make fun animations; meanwhile students with a previous coding foundation will learn new ways to build characters that will make their coding projects unique and outstanding.
