Programming and coding are becoming necessary skills for various fields of engineering. Many of today’s engineers spend most of their time in front of a computer: processing, analysing, and extracting data to help them design, test and improve products and tools. With coding and programming knowledge, today’s engineers can work faster and come up with more creative design solutions that otherwise would be out of reach without programming.
Scratch introduces children to programming in a logical way by opening the door to the world of programming. Just as any student can be an engineer, any student can program! Some Examples of types of engineers that use programming are: Chemical engineers use programming to run simulations, analyse results, or do large filesystem tasks that would be tedious by hand. Mechanical and Industrial engineers use unique software to program the robots and machines that help make many of the products that we buy. Electrical engineers use programming to write simulations and collect data for testing designs
In EFK Software Engineering Scratch Video Sensing course, students will use Scratch to catch flying pancakes, traces objects, create works of art, recreate sounds of musical instruments and jump over different obstacles when exploring coding foundation using Scratch.
What’s more fun than playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Video sensing allows students to design and program their own video games and then test them by interacting with the program via webcam.
