Creative Coding teaches your child the joy of computer programming by helping them write their own custom computer games and animations!
Beginner students will participate in the Creative Coding core curriculum, learning the fundamental elements of coding using MIT's Scratch to create their very own computer game!
Advanced coders (students with previous Scratch experience) will enjoy the Advanced Curriculum, where each day contains a unique mix of coding challenges techniques, and hacks. Our classes are designed to be repeated as many times as desired. Each time, kids increase their coding skills, speed and proficiency.
Many parents and educators are realizing that the benefits of learning to code at a young age extend far beyond the skill itself. Through the "brain exercise" of coding, coders build intelligence like athletes build muscles. Just as importantly, they develop stronger problem solving skills, confidence over technology, and emotional persistence.
Ages: Grade 2 through 5. Parents are encouraged to consider their 2nd graders' emotional maturity level, and how they currently handle frustration when engaging in creative tasks. Coding is incredibly fun, but it's not easy. If there is any doubt, it may be better to wait a year. If you think they're ready, they probably are!
