Our coding and robotics center is open with new classes!  Please note that we require registration in advance.

Intro to Coding – SCRATCH

Scratch is a coding language that was developed by MIT university engineers. It is taught at many elementary schools, but often only at a rudimentary level. In Scratch, students do not have to type, but they hold and drag colored blocks over the screen to see the graphic output. 

Our experience is that the benefits of Scratch are underestimated. Students with a solid background in Scratch have been better and faster in understanding scripted languages like Python. Generally, we recommend that if your child is under 10 years of age and has not had a coding class before, this is the class to start with. 

 

Intro to Coding – PYTHON

Python is one of the most powerful and flexible programming languages of our time. It is an industry standard and ideal as a first language for children aged 10 and above due to its intuitive syntax. YouTube, DropBox, Google, Instagram and Spotify were all written in Python; so any future programmer or curious coder should start here. 

In this summer course, we will follow a different approach than we do during the school year. Students will learn the basics of Python, enabling them to write short game codes and prepare them for the summer course Coding-Attack of the Vampire Pizzas. No previous coding knowledge is required. Usually suitable for students age 10 and above. 

 

Coding – PYTHON

– ATTACK OF THE VAMPIRE PIZZAS (BEGINNER)

All students who have a background equivalent to the summer course INTRO TO CODING (ONLINE) – PYTHON are welcome to take this summer course. We will write code for a fantastic game, thereby learning fundamental aspects of Python in a didactically structured way. Usually suitable for students age 10 and above. 

 

Coding – PYTHON

– ATTACK OF THE VAMPIRE PIZZAS (ADVANCED) 

This course is designed for students who already have a background in Python equivalent to Coding 2 at CodeCraze. We will write code for a fantastic game, thereby learning new aspects of Python in a didactically structured way. We will customize the game and add extensions where appropriate. Usually suitable for students age 10 and above. 

 

Coding – PYTHON

– MINI 2D GAMES (ADVANCED) 

This course is designed for students who already have a background in Python equivalent to Coding 2 at CodeCraze. We will write fun short 2D game codes like Tetris, Slider, and Squirrel thereby solidifying shaky parts of our knowledge, and learning new aspects that are also useful for school math. Usually suitable for students age 10 and above. 

 

ROBOTICS-

Please see our Summer Camp offerings. Our regular weekly VEX competition team classes with building and coding will resume mid-August.
