Code Advantage (new):

Kodu Play – Coding through 3D Video Game Design (1st-2nd graders)
One of the best ways to get a child excited is to allow them to create something of their own. In this class, we enable young kids to make their own 3D adventures by using fundamental coding concepts. Children will take Kodu apple picking, program Kodu to play hide and seek, and even help Kodu find his way out of a maze! Students are encouraged to make the adventures their own by adding in their own ideas. Learning to code at a young age allows children to exercise critical thinking, creative expression, and apply logical reasoning.

Kodu Plus – Coding through 3D Video Game Design (3rd-5th Graders)
Kids have a blast creating their own 3D video games and adventures while learning fundamental coding concepts such as loops, variables, and constructors. In this Game Design class, we combine a child’s love of playing games with the ability to create those games through coding. Students create and personalize games such as Pac-Man, Space Alien invaders, and even get to create their very own game from scratch! Coding allows kids to use critical reasoning, creative expression, and logical thinking skills. This class does not require any prior computer/coding experience. Lessons are more in-depth and appropriately paced for 3rd-5th grade students.
