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.

The following is an outline of each level.

Level 1: Coding Puzzles and Scratch Jr.

Level 2: Blockly
