High School

Advance High School Computer Science

High school prepares students to be independent in their future careers and helps them plan accordingly. High School students start thinking more abstractly, reason, express with complexity, and understand consequences to actions.

Makeblock Education for high school fosters the development of critical thinking and problem solving. Students are encouraged to assume the role of innovator and entrepreneur. The solutions are ideal for hands-on project and inquiry-based learning with the opportunity to expand into complex science and technology topics.

The Makeblock education design process is utilized to allow students to Understand, Explore, and Visualize. This process allows all students the ability to access and fully engage with age appropriate curriculum expectations.

The Makeblock Journey

mBlock 5 Software Journey, focused on high school learners

mBlock 5 can be accessed through an online browser, the app, or downloaded to PC or Mac. Switching from block-based programming to Python or Arduino-C is just one click away. At this level mBlock can be utilized with CyberPi.

mBlock 5 is ideal to teach the basic principles of programming for middle school students. This can be done through block-based programming. As a result, students can then make the first steps into more advanced computer science concepts.
