Computers are incredibly powerful when we know how to use them, and even more so if we know how to create with them. From games to websites to mobile apps, computer programming lets people design the tools that we all work with every day.
We offer coding classes for beginners and advanced students. Beginner classes teach Scratch, and advanced students learn Python. By the end of the class, students will be able to create simple games and apps, and solve different kinds of challenges and puzzles. In addition to the programming languages themselves, students learn important computer science concepts and techniques, including algorithms, functions, and debugging, and also experience the bigger picture of where computers can take us, such as artificial intelligence and computer learning. Perhaps most importantly, we provide supportive and experienced teachers to help students develop their skills, and a space for students to try out their ideas and meet other kids with similar interests.
Computer programming is one of the most important skills in the job market right now, and becoming more important every day. Knowing how to code opens doors in all kinds of fields, not just computer science. From biology to foreign languages, computer programming gives you an advantage, and it trains your brain to think critically, to analyze information, and to problem solve – skills you will need no matter where you go in life.
