  • Roblox Coding Studio: Requires familiarity of fundamental coding concepts. If your child is new to coding, take Scratch Ninja 1&2.



Scratch Junior
Your child might have started playing with your phone at 3 years old and have become an expert of YouTube and mobile apps at age 5. So why not getting started on understanding how computers work with coding? As Apple CEO Tim Cook said, "Coding is the most important second language for everyone to learn". This series of fun classes use the Scratch Junior platform, developed by the same MIT team that built the Scratch. While building interactive stories and games, your child will be introduced to the basics of coding concepts, solve problems, and most importantly, create!

Junior Robotics
This first unit will introduce students to the basics of VEX Code and programming in 3-D. Students will learn how to navigate robots through virtual worlds and complete exciting maze challenges! In the second unit, students will practice navigating robots through even more complicated virtual worlds full of obstacles by making use of sensors. Moreover, students will learn how to make robots transport objects and see how these topics are important in real-world scenarios!

Mobile Coding for Apps & Games
Students learn the core building-blocks of web pages, including HTML and CSS, as well as how the Internet works. Students will build their very first fan website on their favorite things. By the end of the class, we will also have interacted with the latest tools that will help them build web pages faster. In the second class of the series, students start to learn Javascript and build websites with dynamic content and interactions with viewers. We will create web apps using Javascript and use the newly acquired skills to improve the fan site from level 1.

Python for All Units
Students take a deeper dive into coding using Python. Students will transition from block coding, which they learned in Scratch, to text-based coding. They will learn fundamental Python skills as they build creative stories, animations, and games. Basic topics will include using Python syntax, variables, loops, functions, and built-in data structures. In these classes, students will begin using Python for AI and data science. We will explore more advanced elements of Python such as dictionaries and files and learn how to employ Python’s powerful modules to build games, stories and real-world data projects.
