MindKraft Code Junior aims to teach the basics of coding to kids in Grades K-3. Using visual programming interfaces and block-based coding, kids can build games, animations and stories and learn about basic coding concepts such as sequencing, algorithms and loops.
This is a fun, introduction to coding for kids using block-based coding. We use a variety of tools such as interactive puzzles, Scratch Jr, Blockly and Scratch to teach the basics of coding to kids.
Kids can easily snap together programming blocks to create amazing games, animations and stories. Through this program not only do they learn fundamental coding concepts, but they are also able to express their creativity and imagination through their projects. Critical math and literacy concepts are also reinforced.
The course consists of up to 4 levels depending on the age of the child. Each level 12 weeks long.
Level 1: Coding Puzzles and Scratch Jr.
Level 2: Blockly
Level 3: Scratch Basics
Level 4: Scratch Advanced
We will have Android tablets at our centre to be used by the students. However, if you prefer, you can send your child with their own iPad or Android tablet. The Scratch Jr app will need to be installed on the tablet before the first class. Note that Scratch Jr does not work on mobile phones or laptops.
We will teach coding using Scratch Jr, a visual programming language specifically built by MIT to teach coding to kids.
There will be a maximum of 5 students per instructor.
If the centre is shut down for more than 1 month we will refund the tuition fees for the unused classes.
