One of the best ways to get kids excited is to allow them to create something of their own. In this exciting Intro to Coding, students bring their imaginations to life in full, 3D color!
Using Kodu, a 3D programming language, your child learns the basics of coding while flexing their critical thinking and creative reasoning skills. Utilizing block coding, this class helps young learners focus on the coding concepts (not all the typing) to ensure they understand loops, variables, and constructors while having a blast! Kids love the fact they can code and create 3D video games which they can play!
Behind the smiles and laughter, they are learning the basics of coding while deepening their analytical skills and expressing their own creativity!
Key Skills students will build in class:
Level 1: Hone computer skills, Design game settings, and Program objects
Level 2: Delve into more advanced object programming concepts including loops, functions, and logic gates
Level 3: Learn prototyping, Design more advanced games using constructors and variables
frogger freeway, high speed driving maze, underwater diving, airplane battle, multi-player racing games, strategy-based games, and sports games
Please be advised: If you have not taken the previous level with CodeAdvantage, make sure your child has received 10+ hours of instruction in the previous level before registering. Your child may need to be moved to a more appropriately paced class.
