Event description

Description

One of our most popular school programs!

Kids learn how to code cool video games - including game structure, graphics, sound, animation and characters - using Scratch, a programming language created by MIT that nurtures creativity, math skills and problem-solving. All games are non-violent and kid-friendly.

Already coded before? Kids can create more sophisticated games with more included advanced features -- so every child progresses at his/her own pace.

Workshop Details

A great introduction or more advanced re-fresher to the fundamentals of coding. Kids create interactive video games that build upon their math, logic and problem-solving skills. Kids also present their project to the class.

  • REQUIREMENTS: Kids are encouraged to bring their own laptop or a Codezilla chromebook will be provided
  • CURRICULUM: Each workshop includes Basic and Advanced games so kids can progress at their own pace. Our small class size ensures better child:adult ratio.


Why Should Kids Code?

  1. CODING IS A SUPER SKILL: Instead of simply playing a video game, kids learn how to create a video game! This helps build their confidence, technical skills, and perseverance (grit) to succeed.
  2. CODING HELPS WITH MATH: Coding uses math skills like logic, patterns, sequences and coordinates -- and it's more engaging than workbooks or tutoring programs.
  3. CODING LEADS TO JOB OPPORTUNITIES: there will be +1M well-paying and unfilled computing jobs by 2020, yet less than 3% of degrees are in computer science.

Who Is This Workshop For?

  • Beginner/Intermediate Level - No prior coding experience required. Basic and Advanced project levels to ensure that all kids progress according to their abilities.
  • Projects specially designed to appeal to both boys and girls.
  • Parents are welcome to relax in the lounge area.
