Coding & Technology
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. Tuesday 4:15PM - 5:15PM
Specific Dates: Oct 20, Oct 27, Nov 10, Nov 17, Nov 24, Dec 1
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.
In Competition Math, our team of 5th graders emerged as the highest scoring JV team in the 2019 December - Charlotte Tri-Mathlon, while competing with 18 of the best middles schools from the greater Charlotte area. One of our then 5th grade students was the top individual scorer in JV. Charlotte Tri-Mathlon is a MathCounts style competition for middle school students, hosted every year by Community House Middle.
In another Competition Math event (MaPP), the same 5th grader team placed 4th out of around 12 middle school and high school teams. The top 4 teams differed by 1 point with each other.
Our students have been consistent top scorers in elementary school Math Olympiad (#1 in school) and Math Kangaroo (top 5, top 10, top 20 national rank)
