Coding and Robots - Ages 4-8
Students learn the fundamentals of coding (computer programming) and progress from beginning to advanced levels, in an age-appropriate sequence of courses.
Coding helps kids develop their creativity, analytical thinking and problem solving abilities — essential skills for school and future career success.
Designed to be suitable for their age range, our classes allow kids to learn through guided play in an exploratory and collaborative environment, using activities on and off the computer.
The design and programming of robots is integrated throughout the curriculum, designed to engage and challenge students at each level. Robots range from simple mechanical creations, to Dash and Dot robots from the Wonder Workshop, to complex Lego Wedos robots.
At ages 4 – 8, students begin learning to code with the programming languages Scratch Jr. and Scratch. Scratch is a visual programming language developed by MIT, kids are able to program using drag-and-drop “program blocks.” Scratch is built to be user-friendly and is even used for beginning computer science college students.
