GR 8/9* STEAM Book Club: Enigma and Coding

Tuesdays, Oct 3, 2017 – December 5 (10 weeks)
Time: 1:00-2:30pm PST
Teacher: Shannon Beglaw

 

Description:
Want to learn how to send secret messages? We’ll explore Eric Walters’ book set in World War II, and we will enter into the world of coding.

We will read and discuss the book using a literature circle format, and use STEAM inquiry to pursue coding skills in several ways. For example we will use blogging, Viking Runes, ciphers, and Mayan pictographs as an introduction to coding then move into wartime messaging and code projects.


*Students slightly outside of that grade range may request approval from the coordinator to participate prior to signing-up.

Students will need appropriate devices for participation in Zoom meetings and Internet connectivity.
