Little Coders Starter – Grades 6 to 8
– Programming classes for kids from 6th to 8th grade.
We offer engaging, project-based classes that enable kids to gain critical skills for success. We believe coding is a foundational skill every child should have just like writing and mathematics. Our goal is to be a catalyst for kids to develop logic, analytical thinking, and creative reasoning in a fun and interactive environment.
Little Coders Starter grade 6 to 8
Recommended Ages: 6 to 8 grade.
The ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When kids learn to code, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas.
Little Coders Starter – grade 6 to 8 cours introduce kids to in-depth programming concepts. In these classes, young students will use coding building blocks in Scratch to build different adventures using animations and storytelling.
The course has a duration of 8 weeks, 1 hour per week.
Scratch is a project of the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.
What Youth are Saying about Scratch
“I like Scratch better than blogs or social networking sites like Facebook because we’re creating interesting games and projects that are fun to play, watch, and download. I don’t like to just talk to other people online, I like to talk about something creative and new.” – 13-year-old
“My 8-year-old brother and I have been active participants of the Coding With Scratch classes for over a year. We enjoy designing and programming games and animations with other kids, because different people have different skills, and when you work together, you can build a much better project than you can alone.” – 13-year-old
