Step into the World of Programming

Specially designed for curious young minds who are new to coding / programming.  This course introduces children to computer programming, problem solving, and logical thinking. We believe in engaging children to be thinkers and creators through hands-on and project-based learning.

Students will design their own interactive stories, animations, and games using Scratch, a visual programming language.

Beginner Scratch

The Beginner Scratch program is divided into two classes: Scratch Beginner 1 and Scratch Beginner 2.

Scratch Beginner 1

  • Introduction to  Scratch
  • Coding fundamentals: conditionals, loops, variables, and more.
  • Games, Animations, Interactive Stories
  • Debugging
  • Student Projects

Scratch Beginner 2

  • Review of Scratch
  • Coding fundamentals: inter-sprite communications, intro to object oriented programming with clones, functions, and more.
  • Game Design basics
  • Debugging
  • Student Projects

STEM Lab: Scratch

Coding classes for intermediate level students focused on a  STEM topic, such as robotics, game physics, game design, creative writing, A.I., and more.

Kids develop new coding skills and hone existing skills while exploring a new subject.  This allows kids to apply their coding skills to real, concrete problems, while doing something they enjoy!  Learn something new! And have fun!

There are two types of classes:

  • STEM Lab: Scratch General classes that change topics each class.
  • STEM Lab: Scratch Themed classes that focus on one specific topic.

STEM Lab: Scratch General Class
This class has a broad focus which explores many different STEM themes.  This lets kids explore  different technologies such as A.I., augmented reality, game design, mathematics, computer science, music, and more.  The content for this class is always different from the themed STEM classes, so students can take the general STEM classes and the themed STEM classes, without repeating lessons.

STEM Lab Themed Classes

  • Game Design
  • Minecraft
  • mBot Robotics
  • LEGO Robotics
  • micro:bits
  • Machine Learning
  • Creative Writing
