In this course, beginner level students will get introduced to text-based coding through the Coding Adventure program from CodeMonkey.

The course will be 18 weeks long with one 85-minutes lesson every week. It will be divided into 2 units and each unit will consist of 9 lessons. You can register your child for Unit 1 and Unit 2 separately, or for the full course together.

In the 9 lessons under Unit 1, the students will first understand the fundamentals of text-based coding as they help a monkey catch bananas in fun-filled coding challenges. They will continue the fun-filled learning as they meet new characters and learn more advanced coding concepts like functions and conditions.

In the Unit 2 lessons, students will learn more advanced coding concepts like Boolean logic, comparison operators, return values and triggering events. They will create a medium complexity game for application of all those coding concepts.

Duration: 25.5 Hours - one 85 minute lesson per week for 18 weeks.
