Computer programming is a great skill to develop & kids LOVE it!
Computer programming teaches students to develop algorithms to solve problems, recognize simple and complex patterns and data analysis skills. These skills are applicable to nearly any subject. Students who learn this way of thinking begin to see relationships between different subjects as well as in life.
How it Works
Students in Programming Lab will progress through a series of programming tasks and challenges the build from easy to difficult. Every student gets their own computer and has the opportunity to progress at their own pace. There is a highly qualified programming instructor to guide the students through each level of difficulty and assist them whenever they need it.
Students from beginner to expert can join Programming Lab at any time and continue on as long as they like.
The initial set of challenges require the use of SCRATCH — a programming language developed at MIT and intended to make programming accessible for students and novice programmers. It can be used by elementary students to create games, computer animations, and all sorts of other multimedia projects. Best of all, it’s fun to use! Students will learn programming principles and techniques that they can later apply to other more complex programming languages.
Once students have completed all of the SCRATCH challenges, they will move on to a language called Processing. Processing is based on Java and will introduce students to coding. The will be able to create games and animations in Processing.
