Introduction to Programming – Spring 2017
January 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm$200
Let’s learn to code! This class meets for 1 hour, on Thursdays, for 10 weeks, January 19-March 23. Kids will learn basic programming concepts such as:
- Repetition (Loops)
- Conditional Logic
We will use both online and offline methods to teach the concepts, so children won’t spend the whole time poking away at a computer. Our computer-based activities are based on Scratch, which you can use at home, for free. We will also use robots, such as Ozobots, Dash, and Dot, to demonstrate programming concepts.
This course is geared towards children in grades 2-6, who are very comfortable reading and using a computer. Typing/writing skills are very helpful, but not required, because Scratch is mostly drag-and-drop.
