Event description

Description

Kids learn how to code cool video games - including game structure, graphics, sound, animation and characters - using Scratch, an introductory programming language created by MIT and used by millions of budding programmers worldwide.

Workshop Details

This 6-week program is a great introduction or re-fresher to the fundamentals of coding. Kids create interactive video games that build upon their math and logic skills. Kids also get a chance to present their project to the class.

  • COST: Early Bird Pricing = $170 / Regular Price = $180 (No HST)
  • DATES: Sundays, Jan. 21 - Mar. 4, 2018 ** NO CLASS SUNDAY, FEB 18 (Happy Family Day!) **
  • TIMES: 2:30 - 4pm (9 hrs over 6 weeks)
  • REQUIREMENTS: Kids are encouraged to bring their own laptop (or a Codezilla chromebook may be provided - limited laptop availability).
  • CURRICULUM: Each workshop includes Basic and Advanced content to ensure that each child progress at his/her own pace.

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 CSI lounge area.
