Open Play – Fall 2017

Play with our toys! Kids will have a chance to experiment with robots, circuit kits, and more. This is a great way to see if some of the cool tech toys you’ve seen in the store are worth the investment. Some of the toys we have available include:

  • Bloxels
  • Dash & Dot
  • K’Nex
  • littleBits
  • Snap Circuits

If there is a particular toy you would like to see available on a given night, please let us know. Otherwise we’ll have a rotating selection out for the kids to try, along with our bricks and mini-figures. Open Play is a drop-off activity for kids in K-8. School-based Wonder League Robotics Club members may use their practice vouchers to register for individual sessions, but a parent or guardian must stay with them at all times. If you wish to drop your child off for Open Play, please do not use a practice voucher.

Please note that we won’t have the computers running during Open Play; this is for our non-computer tech toys.

Each week is pretty standalone, so your child can join in at any time! This class is only offered as a drop-in

Individual, weekly, drop-in sessions are $18 per week. Please register in advance.

Open Play will take a short hiatus for Winter Break, but will return in January. So those of you with practice vouchers, make sure you save some for 2018!

YouTube Star – Fall 2017

Does your child want to be the next YouTube super star? Let us show them the ropes! Kids will learn about:

  • Staying safe on the Internet
  • Planning interesting videos
  • Recording and editing videos, including adding music and voiceovers
  • Exporting videos for YouTube

You can see examples of videos kids have already made on our YouTube channel. We typically have the kids create a challenge video, walkthrough/tutorial, interview, and unboxing, but we work with the class to determine the best videos to produce with that class.

We typically upload all videos to the Coder Kids Club YouTube Channel, because technically, your kids aren’t old enough for their own YouTube channels! If your child does have a YouTube channel, he or she can bring in a flash drive and grab his or her videos, to upload with you at home.

This class meets 6-7pm on Wednesdays, November 1-December 13 (no class November 22). We recommend this class for kids in grades 3-8. Younger kids are also welcome to join us, but might need a parent to help.

Important: Each student needs a USB headset with microphone for this class. We very highly recommend this onehttp://amzn.to/29e7B72. We know that particular headset works every time with our hardware and software. If you want your child to use a different headset, please make sure it’s USB, and not 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks. If your child isn’t using the recommended headset, you will need to stick around when we record with the headsets (at least once), to get it working properly with our hardware and software. Please make sure your child’s headset is clearly labeled with his or her name on it, and bring it to and from class each week.
