Trial Class: Computer Coding Level 1(CC101) for Kids

What is it?

This 1.5 hour computer coding class is the trial class to our Computer Coding Level 1 for young students between grade 4 and grade 7.

This trial class will introduce your children to the MIT's Scratch coding platform and learn about coding concepts with mini-exercises and finally work on an individual project.

Students, who complete this class, are invited to enroll into Computer Coding Level 1 (CC101). CC101 comprises four 1.5 hour classes over four weekends. CC101 focuses on programming concepts: computational thinking, algebra, pattern recognition, debugging, sequence, If-loop and variables.

Why do Your Kids need to learn coding?

Computer Coding is becoming the no.1 essential skill in the marketplace. By 2020, over 67% of new jobs in all sectors are related to technology and require a high level of computer coding skills. Sadly, Alberta school curriculum fails to provide an engaging and interactive learning program to prepare our children to be successful. Without a well-developed computer science foundation, your children may fall behind as they enter middle schools, universities and future job markets

Teaching young students

Teaching young students coding is a lot more than training in a new skill. Your children will achieve:

  • Become Creators Using Technology

  • New Confidence in Problem-solving

  • Model with Mathematics and Science

  • Lead in a team and Communicate Effectively


What will your kids learn?

CC101 focuses on programming concepts. MIT's block programming platform Scratch, will be used for its ease of snapping blocks of code together instead of memorizing programming lines. This will allow your child to create complex video games, intricate artwork and even control a robot.

Refreshment will be provided for all parents and students at the end of the class. Future class planning and feedback will be discussed among parents and students.


My child wants to sign up, how can he/she sign up?

The first free trial class is designed for children between grade 4 and grade 7. Parents are invited to stay with your children for the first 15 minutes.

What do I need to bring?

Bring any laptop with wifi capability. Also, bring a small note book for writing down user name and password. *Please prepare an user name and password ahead of class


Who will teach the class?

A certified teacher will be the main instructor and two other teaching assistants will be helping the class. All our teaching staff are the University of Alberta's Education or Engineering graduates.
