Coding, and Competition Math Virtual Clubs

Registrations open

Classes Starting Sep, 2021 (Free classes for both Coding & Math included)

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.

About Thinking Feet virtual classes (a FREE session to experience).

The club is being offered fully Virtual, leveraging our 5+ years of experience offering virtual classes to students across the country.

We are proud to offer virtual classes that are full of energy, engagement and are collaborative with our experienced teachers drawing students into many brainstorming discussions. There is never a dull moment in Thinking Feet classes.

However, we understand that not all virtual class experience that your child may have had elsewhere may have met expectations.

This is why we will be offering a FREE session, a week before actual classes start so that  your child can assess for themselves. If you decide to cancel after that Free Class, you will receive a full refund.

Coding Animations & Games in MIT-Scratch.

Curriculum customized for each group (Grades 1 - 2 and 3 - 5).

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

Students will learn code fundamentals to create motion (with varying speed, direction, smoothness), size modifications, color changes, simple conditional statements, loops, sequential and parallel processing. They will learn through experimentation and improvise based on instantaneous results of their Code.

They will design and code full animations and games that they can share with family and friends.

A great beginner friendly program to introduce your child to the hottest skill of the century, in a customized pacing for our youngest creators.

Mobile Apps Design and Coding with MIT App Inventor

Students design and develop fully functional mobile apps and games that they can install on their phones plus share with family and friends. Using simple yet powerful tools, campers proudly design and develop fully functional Android apps. They will amaze you with their creativity in this program that has campers building all new apps at both beginner and advanced levels. Students will become self sufficient in building apps and various inbuilt phone sensors like accelerometer, orientation sensor, GPS, camera etc.

Our students have branched out to win many coding competitions and published apps on the app store. Your child will come out of this program with sufficient exposure and knowledge to continue their journey independently and build many mobile apps with practical use.

The exciting world of Competition Mathematics can often be classified into theory building and/or problem solving. Of course all mathematicians solve problems, while only a few are great theory builders. Theory building involves developing repeatable solution strategies that can be applied in problem solving and the building of structures that enable us to see patterns out of what appears to be chaos.

The Competition Math classes take students in an exciting journey full of theory-building AND problem solving enrichment. It is designed to encourage children to embrace problem solving as an exciting and uplifting social activity.
