Creative Coding CLASS FULL (Grades 3-5, 3:50 - 5:20 pm), by Creative Coding 4 Kids
*Note: This session will be mixed ­level classes with students being taught at their level, by two highly trained teachers
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. For more info, visit creativecoding4kids.com Cost: $382
