Overview

Coding Classes and Summer STEM Camps

BSD stands for Build Something Different.  We are an international team (Hong Kong, USA and Thailand) of social entrepreneurs, technologists and educators dedicated to empowering the kids of today with the tools for tomorrow. Our mission is to give every student access to technology education.  

We partner with schools to build curated technology curriculum that fit into all subjects (e.g., History, Math, Science).  Schools and teachers we work with have access to BSD’s online learning platform, content and curriculum, as well as in-person or virtual training for all experience levels.  This gives teachers the confidence, content and community they need to start embedding technology in their classroom today. Our goal is to get every student using the latest technology – including coding, design and robotics - to solve real world problems.

BSD wants every student to feel confident addressing today’s problems with tomorrow’s technology and feel empowered to ‘Build Something Different’.

First Steps in Coding

Students will initially learn the basics of HTML and CSS to add content and styling to their first website. They will change colors and fonts, add and alter images and add headings and paragraphs. They will then move on to build a storybook website, which includes their own images, which they will design on Piskel. Finally they will move on to build website navigation, which uses more advanced HTML and CSS concepts.

First Steps in Game Dev

Students will be introduced to the differences between game assets and game mechanics, before beginning to build their own game. They will initially create a flowchart and storyboard for their game and then move on to designing it with CSS and HTML. Once they have mastered these concepts, they will be introduced to JavaScript to build new scenes and add the interactivity that will take their game up a notch.
