Description

Coding is becoming a fundamental literacy, and even our littles can learn to code! Using interactive movement games, students will learn the fundamentals of programming. They will even code games in the very simple but powerful Scratch Jr platform while they learn to think sequentially, explore cause and effect, and develop design and problem solving skills.

This class is great for nerds that like games! Playing them and building them! The Scratch Jr platform is easy to use and understand, with blocks, colors and symbols that are friendly to our little noob nerds, but is also capable of creating complex scripts for our more advanced nerds! Our little nerds love that this class is interactive, with lots of movement and physical coding, while still creating fun digital games.

Nerds will create lots of digital code in this class to create mini-games, animations, and interactive stories. Nerds will also make scripts to “code” real life objects like robot mice, friends dressed as turtles, and even program your teacher to do tasks! Nerds will also build their own physical coding game to take home and share with their families!

Nerds in this class learn coding fundamentals such as sequencing, loops, sensing, and conditional logic. It may seem complicated, but this is the perfect time to get started with programming! Nerds will learn to write scripts, iterate, and debug their code!

Our Little Nerd classes for grades 1-3, are engaging and exciting and vary greatly in content and structure, but in some form there is always direct instruction from the teacher, guided practice, and independent or small group work with help and support from peers and staff. We usually begin the day with a team building activity and move into our first lesson. Next is a hands-on activity or project. Halfway through the class, kids will take a brief recess and snack break. A second lesson follows break and the kids will do another project/activity or continue one they were working on. Bottom line: It’s hands-on, interactive, fun learning.

Class is 3hrs each day, so bring a snack for break time. Also, bring your own refillable water bottle. Don’t have one? Add our Nerding water bottle to your order and pick up on first day of class!
