  • Coding for Kids - 3rd - 6th, Mondays 4-5pm

    Meets Mondays from 4-5pm.
    Offered to students in 3rd through 6th grades.
    Tuition is $225 for the semester.

    Using Scratch (a beginner's visual programming language), kids will learn the basics of computer programming and thinking logically.

    Children will start with a simple program that helps them learn the basics and will find their way around the Scratch interface. Their assignments will gradually move up in complexity - making their own artwork they will use in programmed animations and games they can be proud to show off. The lessons will culminate in a final project where the children can use any of their favorite subjects to do anything from design a game to teach younger kids math concepts to animating a specific period in history and anything in between.
    Learning Algorithms (a list of steps to finish a task), Conditional Statements (if this is true then this happens), and getting into and out of Loops (doing the same thing over until a certain condition is met) are very important for a child's growth and will help the child think logically in this increasingly technical world.
