September 3rd was postponed due to Hurricane Dorian. This missed class will be made up by adding additional time to several other dates. Once those dates are determined through the school we will email families to let them know, which dates are extended.
Your children will learn to create programs to solve our increasingly complex challenges using our Dash and Dot robots. Additionally your children will create and grow their own Scratch account where we will teach computer programming for video games, art and music. We will also delve into 3D printing and design with TinkerCad.

The cost is $300 for 15 weeks.
WHY SHOULD YOUR KIDS LEARN PROGRAMMING?
Myth: Computer programming is super hard.
Busted: We make programming easy for even young children by making it fun!
Myth: Computer programming is boring – all that typing.
Busted: We introduce the world of programming through drag and drop coding.
Myth: Young kids won’t WANT to code.
Busted: We utilize children’s affinity for video games and art to motivate them to learn coding – they end up coding their own video games and artistic creations.
Myth: Not all kids are natural programmers.
Busted: Programming is just like math or art, anyone can learn it – even young children.
Myth: Coding isn’t for girls.
Busted: Some of the more talented coders we have encountered are female. A majority of our instructors are female. The industry is clamoring for female developers – leaving doors wide open for girls who can program.
