STEM KIDZ: JR PROGRAMMING (8 sessions)



The Scratch course introduces coding concepts to the young imaginative minds. Kidz coders learn basic commands including moving sprites forward and turning left/right, then build their own fun stories and characters through sequences, loops, conditionals. Students are encouraged to construct creative games and detail the steps to bring their imagination to reality. We believe that every child should be given the opportunity to learn how to code. Scratch is a preparatory step for young children to learn how to think sequentially, explore cause and effect, and develop design and problem-solving skills.
