TK & Kinder will learn sequencing, problem-solving and how to decompose large tasks into smaller steps. We will utilize a variety of kinesthetic activities, coding puzzle apps and robots.
1st grade will learn programming fundamentals such as sequencing, events and loops. We will begin with Code.org's CS Fundamentals course before transitioning to coding puzzle apps and creating their own animated stories in Scratch Jr.
2nd & 3rd grades will learn programming logic such as loops, conditionals, events and broadcasts as they develop problem-solving and algorithmic thinking skills. We will begin with Code.org's CS Fundamentals course, transition to coding puzzle apps, creative coding and robots!
4th & 5th grades will learn to create their own games and animations in Scratch, a powerful visual programming language and learning environment developed by MIT. They will employ basic, intermediate and advanced programming concepts as they complete increasingly complex projects. The will learn to think like a programmer and solve problems with code.
