Coding & Technology Virtual Clubs

Grades 3-5: 6 weeks. Wednesdays 4:15PM - 5:15PM

Starting Oct 21, 2020

Thinking Feet's Coding & Technology program has a unique and proprietary curriculum, where your child will go well beyond just Coding and develop as a creative thinker and problem solver - nurturing their innate curiosity. You will watch your child transform from being a consumer of technology to a creator of fully functioning technology products.

In our time tested curriculum and engaging classrooms, students will be in a fascinating learning journey of computer programming, logical and algorithmic problem solving while building multiple games and applications.

Due to the current situation, the club is being offered completely Virtually, leveraging our 4+ years of offering virtual classes to students across the country.

Grades 3 - 5. Game Development in MIT Scratch. Wednesdays 4:15PM - 5:15PM

Specific Dates: Oct 21, Oct 28, Nov 4, Nov 18, Dec 2, Dec 16

Min: 3. Max: 10 (per group)

Price: $150 for 6 classes

Using MIT's Scratch platform students will design and code fully functioning games that they can share with family and friends.

Students will learn intermediate level coding using variables, graphic adjustments with code, conditional statements, simple and nested loops, sequential and parallel processing to build highly visual and interactive games. They will learn through experimentation and improvise based on instantaneous results of their Code. Students will have enough flexibility to customize their games with individual creative flavors.
