At jrCode we believe that creative critical thinking is one of the fundamental building blocks for success. In each of our classes, students will develop these skills through a variety of programming challenges. We believe that this all starts with a foundational coding knowledge that exposes kids to the basics, our Foundations class. After those basics have been mastered we invite our students to explore specialty tracks of their choosing, including interactive gaming and animation classes. Most of our classes utilize the Scratch platform, which was developed at MIT to introduce children to programming languages.
jrCode is also excited to donate 15% of all proceeds to the Hunnewell PTO.
Foundations (Introduction to Coding)
Every young learner needs a foundation in coding and the skills to discover the creative programming world! This Foundations class uses the Scratch platform to introduce your child to the basics of computer coding and improve their critical thinking skills. Your child will be challenged to learn introductory coding concepts, including algorithms and analytical problem solving, while completing games and projects that are fun and creative.
Coding language/platform used: Scratch (block language)
Recommended Next Class: any Level 1 class
Class Day, Time Options and Location: Thursdays from 3:05-4:05 starting on 10/19 running through 11/30 (no class on 11/23) in the Hunnewell Library.
