Introduction to Programming for Homeschoolers – Spring 2018
April 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
An event every week that begins at 11:00am on Monday, repeating until May 21, 2018
Let’s learn to code! This class meets at Mondays, 11am-12pm, April 9-May 21 (6 sessions, no class May 7). Kids will learn basic programming concepts such as:
- Repetition (Loops)
- Conditional Logic
We will use both online and offline methods to teach the concepts. Our computer-based activities are based on Scratch, which you can use at home, for free.
This course is geared towards children in grades 3-6, who are very comfortable reading and using a computer. Strong readers in grades 1-2 can sometimes do this class, but might need a parent’s help. Typing/writing skills are very helpful, but not required, because Scratch is mostly drag-and-drop.
