Introduction to Programming – Spring 2018
February 6 @ 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm EST
An event every week that begins at 5:45pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 13, 2018
Let’s learn to code! This class meets at Tuesdays, 5:45-6:45, February 6-March 13. March 20 & 27 will be snow make-up dates, if needed. Kids will learn basic programming concepts such as:
- Repetition (Loops)
- Conditional Logic
We will use both online and offline methods to teach the concepts, so children won’t spend the whole time poking away at a computer. Our computer-based activities are based on Scratch, which you can use at home, for free.
This course is geared towards children in grades 3-5, 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.
