What's Included

JavaScript, 10+, Learn the basics one of today's most popular scripting languages. JavaScript is an interpreted language that is used most often in web applications embedded in Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML). This class will teach students to utilize many of the most popular and unique features of this language and prepare them to further their expertise through practice and experience on their own. The instructor will start with the very basics of coding and will progress to having the students make interactive browser pages and implementing them in HTML. By the end of class, students will have a very strong base for continuing their Computer Science Journey, will have a few web pages that can be locally loaded and viewed and an idea of how to make and present their own web pages for employers or friends and even be able to edit web pages they find online. Robert McGillivray is a Sophomore at UK studying computer science, physics, and German language. Robert has been involved in many programs including FIRST Robotics, UK E-Day, UK ACM, and Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout. He is a former Newton’s Attic student and volunteer and has participated in many Newtons Attic projects, including the building of The Ballista, aka the “Pumpkin Chunker.” We first discovered Robert when Bill Cloyd mentored the Dunbar MSTC First Robotics team and then worked with Robert's Engineering Problems class in the Dunbar MSTC program, where Robert was also an FLL (First Lego League) and FTC (First Tech Challenge) mentor. Robert been working at Newton’s Attic since the summer of 2013 when he taught Wrestling Robots. Since then, he has taught many classes during our after school and summer programs including Java Programming, Raspberry Pi Programming, Minecraft Mod, JavaScript, Robotic Gladiators and a special homeschool C++ Coding & build skills class. Robert has also spent a semester abroad in Germany and part of last summer traveling Europe with his German host brother.
