Code Kids! Computer Programming for Early Learners (Beginner: Ages 7-10, Summer 2020 Session 2)


*The event has already taken place on this date: Fri, 07/17/2020
Learn core programming concepts with the easy-to-learn, drag-and-drop interface of Scratch. Students explore creative possibilities while they learn the basics of computational thinking! Mon-Fri, July 13 - July 17, 10am-12pm. Ages 7-10

About the class

Students will create interactive stories, games, and animations using Scratch, a visual, blocks-based, creative programming environment.

Collaboration is encouraged, creativity is nurtued, and problems are solved as students learn the principals of computer science and critical thinking in this exciting and angaging class.

We use the friendly, block-based programming paradigm created by the Scratch team at MIT, to work our way through various projects from simple animations to more complicated stories and games.

Scratch helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively — essential skills for life in the 21st century.

The ability to code computer programs is an important part of literacy in today’s society. When people learn to code in Scratch, they learn important strategies for solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas.

 

This is a beginner's class, for ages 7 through 10.

 

About Think Space Studio 

Our Westchester, NY based enrichment classes for middle school and high school teens teach the fundamentals of computer programming in a casual (but high-energy!), hands-on, small group environment. We focus on small achievable projects and goals to drive the learning experience - from making lightning, fire and optical illusions to creating games, puzzles, and programs - writing the code is never an end in and of itself, but is always a step on the way to making awesome things!

We teach the basic building blocks of computer programming from the ground up, using real-world text based programming languages like Java, JavaScript, Python, Swift, and HTML/CSS. Along the way, we invariably touch on general Computer Science concepts like binary & hexadecimal numbers, coding style, computer architecture, data structures, and a lot more.

Class sizes are intentionally kept small to encourage participation, and to allow the students to learn at a good pace while still being able to receive 1 to 1 help.
